Issue 38 is due to be a real beauty, with stories pulled in from all over the world — a grand tour, in prose, of a dozen places you have perhaps neglected to visit, up to now. There is Ariel Dorfman in Paris, with one eye on Chile, Bisi Adjapon in Ghana, Chanan Tigay with the Israeli Arabs of the Desert Scouts Brigade, Nathaniel Rich exploring the Northeast Kingdom, and Steven Millhauser somewhere far away, deep, deep in the woods — and more stories, besides, plus a comic and color photography and a cover that’ll earn you admiring glances in whatever environment you’re in. Don’t even think about missing this one.
Jack Teagle’s short comic “The Jungle” included as a bound-in insert.
