Summer 2021

Volume 97, Number 2

Our Summer issue deconstructs notions of leisure and freedom. In our cover story, Erika Meitner and Anna Maria Barry-Jester ruminate on Miami’s changing landscape as sea levels rise. Elias Rodriques observes a mother’s complicated repatriation to Jamaica; Rachel Greenwald Smith confronts privilege in lockdown; and Terrance Hayes imagines a Jasper Johns exhibit within a radically transformed White House art space. Other features include a portfolio of Elise Engler’s daily illustrations of the news; fiction by Claire Boyles, Nina MacLaughlin, and Erin Kate Ryan; and poetry by Ama Codjoe, Airea D. Matthews, Christopher Soto, and Tomás Q. Morín.
