  • Volume/Number/Issue/Date Volume 77 Number 2, Spring 2019

Our lead essay “Puerto Rico Redux” by Ralph Keyes reflects on his experiences when we, as “Americana,” were in a foreign land, much like the news these days. Other essays (“Dostoevsky,” “Glut and Indigence,” and “Grigson’s Sword”) return to historical figures, relatives, and writers, including some musings about genealogy closer to home. This issue offers a rich selection of fiction: “Where Dreams Refuse to Die,” “Shy as a Mountain,” “Salim Paanwala,” and more; and closes with poignant poetry by promising and prominent poets: “License to Carry,” “Problem Child,” “Everything Matters,”; once again delivering the BEST words in the BEST order.

“Disarm” is a literary call to lay down our weapons. The writings in our Spring 2019 issue ask questions: How does violence creep into our lives? Will we ever disarm each other? Kazim Ali’s bittersweet poem “Pulse” explores what it’s like to gather “at the edge of the bright darkness of rain.” Christine Vines’ fantastic story “Redacted” reimagines the Fall from the vantage of Eve, “a difficult rib to extract,” her only missile a pinecone. Amy Collini, in her haunting essay “Magnum,” remembers a gun pointed at her. Plus the first-ever 2019 Witness Literary Awards! Don’t miss this heartbreaking and unforgettable issue.
