Publisher’s description: Brick is an international literary magazine based in Toronto, Canada, and edited by Linda Spalding, Michael Redhill, Michael Helm, Rebecca Silver Slayter, Laurie D. Graham, and Martha Sharpe. Published twice a year, the magazine is a beautifully produced keepsake filled with essays, interviews, memoirs, travelogues, belles lettres, and casual, idiosyncratic ephemera that can only be described as “Bricky.” In each issue, the world’s best-loved writers have wide, lively, personal discussions about writing, reading, film, art, culture, science, sports, food—literally anything that strikes their fancy or haunts their imagination.
Recent issues have featured short fiction by Louise Erdrich and Madeleine Thien; interviews with James McBride, Aleksander Hemon, and Tsitsi Dangarembga; essays by Russell Banks, Francine Prose, Alissa Valles, Steven Heighton, Kyo Maclear, and Zachary Lazar; photo features of Martin Helmut Reis and Deborah Luster; and as always, Jim Harrison’s column on food and life.
