Not going gentle. An exuberance of colors by cover and portfolio artist Anne Neely introduces a market square of comedy and contemplation, unexpected narrative pathways, and an insistent push into unfamiliar locales, literal and figurative. The issue features poems by Ira Sadoff, D. Nurkse, Jane Wong, and two dozen others; inventive fiction of every stripe, including work by Valerie Sayers, Bipin Aurora, and John Biguenet; as well as essays and hybrid prose by Xujun Eberlein, Donald Morrill, Bonnie Friedman, and more.
