Winter 2019

Our Winter issue features an extraordinary photography project by Monika Bulaj, whose work explores how communities hold together, whether as a faith diaspora or minorities in their own country. Traces of this theme—of dissonance and distance—are found elsewhere in the issue: on Kafka’s disorienting artistic frustration while touring Europe; in a memoir framed within the Puerto Rican traditions of New York’s Washington Heights; in fiction that imagines the inner life of a classic poem’s narrator; and in poetry that depicts a southern city’s past and imagines its future.
