Magazine Stand :: New England Review – 43.2

New England Review literary magazine vol 43 no 2 2022 cover image

Carolyn Kuebler’s introduction to the newest issue of New England Review (43.2) is a thoughtful reflection on the place of domesticity, travel, and tourism as it is reflected through the eyes of writers and interpreted by readers. The Editor’s Note along with several pieces from this issue are available to read online here. Kuebler also comments on the special feature, “Polyglot And Multinational: Lebanese Writers In Beirut And Beyond”: “The section in fact was born out of guest editor Marilyn Hacker’s desire to go someplace new, to know it more deeply, to feel the heat and rain and to hear voices in cafés. It began with her fascination and curiosity about the Lebanese writers whose works she’d read and translated and culminates here in something altogether uncategorizable.” In addition, this issue includes Poetry by Tomaž Šalamun, Gillian Osborne, Victoria Chang, Analicia Sotelo, Justin Jannise, Corey Van Landingham, Carmen Giménez, Steven Duong, and Tiana Clark; Fiction by Nandini Dhar, David Ryan, A. E. Kulze, Christine Sneed, Roy Kesey, and Kosiso Ugwueze; Nonfiction by Marianne Boruch, Maud Casey, Ben Miller, Sarah Fawn Montgomery, and Richard Harding Davis.

New England Review – 42.4

Last year at this time we released our first issue dedicated to emerging writers, and now with 42.4 we’ve done it again. While this issue offers up the range of voices, genres, and styles New England Review promises every quarter, this time that mission is accomplished by writers who won’t be recognizable to most readers, that is, they’ve not yet published a book or full-length collection. Find a selection of this year’s contributors at the New England Review website.

Lit Mag Long Reads

If you’re a fan of novellas, Volume 42 Number 3 of New England Review and the Summer & Fall 2021 issue of Alaska Quarterly Review have got you covered.

In Alaska Quarterly Review, Kristopher Jansma’s “Like a Bomb Went Off” opens the issue. It begins:

The Neighbor’s House Explodes
The neighbor’s house explodes at 5:05 p.m. Harriet is behind the family station wagon, vacuuming summer’s sand out of the trunk. There is an incredible noise, like something collapsing to the ground. She looks up to see a white cloud rising behind the fence. Warm air rushes by like bathwater. There is no fireball. “It was like a bomb went off,” she’ll soon say, for the first time, even though it is not like that at all.

New England Review has published “Past Perfect” by Alice Greenway. The novella starts with:

“Can you explain when we use was and when use had been?” Sayed Zubair asked. He sat cross-legged on a blanket distributed by Samaritan’s Purse. It was spread on the floor as a rug. His back was impressively straight. He was a neat trim man with a tidy moustache, his hair beginning to thin on top, and he held a notebook in his lap. Behind him, a small plastic fan wedged into a square window blew in welcome air. He was proud of the fan, as he had pirated the electricity, hooking wires into the overhead floodlights that lit the camp at night.

New England Review – Fall 2021

This issue features fiction by Hisham Bustani, Scott Blackwood, Gregory Spatz, Nicole Cuffy and Blair Hurly. It includes Alice Greenway’s novella describing the life in an overcrowded refugee camp. There is also poetry by Natalie Scenters-Zapico, Emma Trelles, Suphil Lee Park, Emelie Griffin, and Benjamin Paloff plus nonfiction by Leath Tonino. And a performance piece by John Cotter.
