Publisher’s description: Take your rightful place in history and subscribe to the oldest continuously published literary quarterly in America. The University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee, is the home of this venerable quarterly, begun in 1892. The Sewanee Review is devoted to American and British fiction, poetry, and reviews, as well as essays in criticism and reminiscence. We invite you to take hold of the direct literary line to Flannery O’Connor, Robert Penn Warren, Hart Crane, Anne Sexton, Harry Crews, and Fred Chappell—not to mention, Andre Dubus and Cormac McCarthy, whose first stories were published in The Sewanee Review. Open this pale blue cover and you might find a chest of jewels or a powder keg. Each issue is a brilliant seminar, an unforgettable dinner party, an all-night swap of stories and passionate stances.
Our essay-issue (Fall 2013) features travel in the literal and metaphorical senses. The road trip, that distinctly American form of pilgrimage, is the central event in Robert Lacy’s poignant essay about traveling with his mother, and—despite his not having a car—the chosen mode of travel for Warner Berthoff, who recounts hitchhiking around the South. Catharine Savage Brosman tests John Donne’s famous dictum, “Every man is an island,” in her essay on life, travel, and a sense of self. Voyeurism, stormy seas, and danger unite in Richard O’Mara’s recounting, while Robert Ashcom remembers a different kind of oceanic peril, writing about his adventures at sea as a young man in the fifties.
