The Review

John Keene on the Art of Fiction: “What my countereducation said at a very basic level was, You have value. Black people around the world are the center, they’re not the margin.” Sharon Olds on the Art of Poetry: “If I had to choose between a poem being therapeutic and it being a better poem, I’d want it to be a better poem.”

Prose by Lydia Davis, Jamie Quatro, and James Lasdun.

Poetry by Jessica Laser, Mirta Rosenberg, and Leopoldine Core.

Art by Jameson Green and Margot Bergman, and cover by Emilie Louise Gossiaux
