Scenes from an Odyssey: Oscar on the Road (essay)
AGNI 80

Unsettling whimsy, gravity, and grace: Photographer Rosamond Purcell’s portfolio— the debut of her “Oscar” series— provides the visual key signature for our most symphonically ambitious gathering of voices yet. Fiction by Beth Bosworth, Josh Weil, Chitra Divakaruni, and Tony Eprile; poetry by Nick Flynn, Erica Funkhouser, Peter Balakian, and Jill McDonough; essays by Anna Journey and K. E. Duffin; and much more. Superb translations of Virgil, Raúl Zurita, Théophile Gautier, Antonio Tabucchi, and others bring striking accents to the weave.
