  • Volume/Number/Issue/Date Volume 49, 2014
TR 49 marks a milestone fiftieth year of literary publishing with some striking new visual art from young Chinese artists exhibited for the first time in the U.S. The literary contents reflect a new generation’s struggle with the idea of “Utopia”—the ironic title of the cover painting by Qui Xiaofei. Poet Zeina Hashem Beck personifies a world “trying to tip over its pain.” Daniel Gabriel describes a brief utopian interlude in his 2009 visit to “Syria Before It All Went South,” while Malcolm Garcia struggles to find grounds for faith amidst horror and ruin in Syria today in his poignant essay, “Praying in Reyhanli.”

CNF’s first-ever readers' choice theme issue is dedicated to MISTAKES. We've collected an explosive group of essays exploring wrong turns and missteps—from a dramatic prison protest to an ill-advised game of strip-spin-the-bottle, from a bad tattoo to the epidemic of errors plaguing our healthcare system. Together, these true stories grapple with questions that get at the heart of how to live. Plus, why building a platform is a waste of a writer's time, why publishing won't make you happy, and why readers shouldn't worry (too much) about the occasional typo.
