Trade paperback. Hot off the press!! Prose, poetry, art and interviews to make your brain sing.
Mary Gaitskill on the Art of Fiction: “I don’t think anyone consciously develops a voice.” Rita Dove on the Art of Poetry: “I believe that if you’re a poet and there is something you are passionate about, regardless of what it is, it will nourish the poetry.” Olga Tokarczuk on the Art of Fiction: “To get going, I need a strong cup of tea and a game of solitaire—it’s like running a comb through my brain.”
Prose by Rivers Solomon, Elaine Feeney, and Marie NDiaye.
Poetry by Nam Le, D. S. Marriott, and Kyra Wilder.
Art by Tabboo! and Henry Taylor, and cover by Peter Doig.
