Additional highlights include an interview with Marilyn Luper Hildreth, the daughter of civil rights legend Clara Luper; Nawal Nasrallah’s recipe for Iraqi turnip and Swiss chard chowder; and a Filipino dagli by Stefani J. Alvarez. The book review section rounds up the best new books from around the world, and additional interviews, poetry, short fiction and creative nonfiction, culture essays, a postcard from the former Yugoslavia, and an outpost from Berlin make the May issue your perfect summer reading companion.
