Our lead story in “Love & Kisses, Lust & Wishes is "In the Land of Make-Believe" by legendary editor, Gordon Lish., concluding with Lish’s "For Jeromé With Love and Kisses." In between are stories by Sheila Kohler and Maureen McCoy, essays by Don Lago (about theatre at UCLA) and Jeffrey Meyers (about "loss" in literature) and a look at how Mark Strand (one-time Poet Laureate) merged the world of poetry with his own collages shown in a New York gallery. Volume 76 Number 2 is an eclectic wide-ranging issue about personalities and literary culture, delivering the best words in the best order.
