Originally published from Paris, the review moved to New York in the sixties but retained its name. It has built an enviable reputation for discovering the best new voices in fiction, non-fiction, and poetry. This gorgeous little number is Paris Review's #245 issue. Inside:
Robert Glück on the Art of Fiction: “When people would ask me—and sometimes they did—to write about them, I’d reply, ‘First, break my heart.’”
Lynn Nottage on the Art of Theater: “I embrace the fact that I write plays that are popular. Audiences make their own decisions.”
Prose by Rosalind Brown, Alena Graedon, Munir Hachemi, Ishion Hutchinson, Moira McCavana, and Liam Sherwin-Murray.
Poetry by Bei Dao, Mónica de la Torre, Jolanda Insana, Nora Claire Miller, D. A. Powell, Katana Smith, Olivia Sokolowski, and Yuki Tanaka.
Art by Eric Nathaniel Mack and Magdalena Suarez Frimkess.
Cover: Joeun Kim Aatchim, Piggyback (Amused), 2019, mineral pigment and refined pine soot ink on silk.
