  • Local Color
    • Abstract: This issue is replete with the color and vibrancy of place, setting and spoken language. What came to be called the Local Color Movement was especially vigorous for over a half century after the Civil War, when this nation and its literature were rising to unparalleled worldwide importance. Before copyright laws came into being in the late 1890s, magazines in Britain were beginning to steal as much from American magazines as we had long been stealing from the British. Several things happened at once to make editors and readers grow interested in settings and spoken language, including the broad popularity of authors such as Mark Twain and Charles Dickens, whose fiction partook intensely of cultural environments ...

  • A Place in the World
    • Abstract: Before he died, your father told you he wasn't afraid, he'd had a good life, his only fear was that he was letting you down. This was in June—Father's Day—and he would die at his home in New Canaan eight weeks later. When he died, you hid in a closet so no one could find you when they came to put his body in a bag. You didn't want to see his body without him in it.Your father was holding your hand when he said he wasn't afraid and when he asked, with his mathematical mind, if you knew why it was that people had to die. You pressed your lips and shook your head; speech was not available to you."To make room for the babies," he said. Then he gave your fingers a squeeze. Don't be afraid, the squeeze was saying. I'm ... Read More

  • Department of Development
    • Abstract: In 1980 I had so little success aptitude that in three years since college I'd never been hired for anything but gardening, painting, housecleaning, or cooking. I told an intake clerk at the New York State Department of Labor that I was working as a poet, and I got the job at City Hall because on the way to the interview I asked directions from a delicate graying man loping leisurely down the marble hall. "Why, it's right this way," he said in mock surprise and gestured with a flourish, and that I raised my eyebrows and mimicked his little bow seemed to please him. My meeting in the Department of Development with Gerri Corvado, who smoked, swore, and barked questions demanding that I prove myself, typically did not ... Read More

  • Trash to Treasure: The Art of Found Materials
    • Abstract: Krištof Kintera, Memorial of the One Thousand and One Nights, 2011Hendrick Kerstens, Doily, March 2011"A pair of socks is no less suitable to make a painting with than wood, nails, turpentine and fabric".In the opening of Don DeLillo's 1984 novel White Noise, narrator Jack Gladney, a chairman of Hitler studies at the College-on-the-Hill, describes a move-in-day caravan of station wagons as they twist through campus. Car roofs are loaded down with suitcases filled with what Jack imagines to be a laundry list of dorm-room paraphernalia. He watches the students unpack and haul to their rooms electronics and small kitchen appliances, items more suited for starter homes than dorm living, and a cornucopia of junk food ... Read More

  • The Longest Night of the Year
    • Abstract: Photo by Isaac BowenSex. That was all Cameron had really wanted. Uncommitted, Internet-facilitated sex and maybe a little conversation. But the woman he brought home—his online date, his supposed match—hasn't emerged from his guest room since she went into it three nights ago, locking the door behind her.She has access to potable water through the en suite. As far as he can tell, she hasn't taken sustenance of any other kind since their dinner on Friday. She hasn't touched the food he's left outside the door; she hasn't, by all appearances, raided the kitchen while he's been asleep. Not that he's slept much. Over the past sixty-some hours, he's listened to her footfalls, to the toilet flushing, to tinny voices ... Read More

  • When Cuckoos Run the Day Care Centers
    • Abstract: Photo by Janet RamsdenMore than fifty years ago, in the village of Compton Burdock, Rose Brooke celebrated her eleventh birthday When her party ended, two children were missing. Rose's father was a Conservative member of parliament and a close associate of the prime minister. Scandal had not yet sullied him.The final game had been a treasure hunt. Armed against the dark with small plastic flashlights, children had ricocheted from one corner of the walled garden to another, deciphering clues devised by Rose's father. The winning pair had moved more casually, attracting no attention. The game, Mr. Brooke decided, was not unlike espionage."Has anyone seen Rose'"Sally said, "I saw her near the mulberry tree with ...

  • Heavy Metal: An essay on Certainty
    • Abstract: Photo by Maximilian ParadizJeff and I are headed east of town to pawn our gold. I have silver, too—or silver-plated plates, boxed five years ago when my grandfather died. The plates rattle in the back of my hatchback. We take the freeway, Jeff squinting into my iPhone for directions. Jeff is in his forties, somewhat aloof, in work pants and a navy jacket. I don't know him all that well; he was briefly in a writing group of mine that he suddenly abandoned for reasons he won't explain. He's quick-witted and arch, judgmental and deadpan, and I feel both liked and scorned by him, an experience I find familial.The refinery is set behind barbed-wire fencing. I parallel park between two old pickup trucks on a gravel ... Read More

  • How to Kill Gra' Coleman and Live to Tell about It: (Vauxhall, NJ, c.
           1949)
    • Abstract: Two pairs of brown fingers fly down Gra' Coleman's head, weaving the long gray strands that dangle to her waist. All that good hair, the two sisters think. Not like theirs. Photo by simpleinsomniaThey wonder how someone so evil could have such nice long hair, but they dare not tug on it or even speak. At least, if they want to live.Photo by simpleinsomniaGinger and Nancy eye each other, both eager to finish first, even though Gra' Coleman will grant each of them fifty cents for the braiding. It's that brief moment when she seems like the nice grandma on the radio shows or like their other grandma, Lucy Grimes, whom they don't see enough for their liking. That brief moment when she smiles, reaching into the ... Read More

  • Book of the Generations
    • Abstract: Beulah Springs, Oklahoma 1974When Lula stepped into the yard, the stray cat Justine held took off so fast it scratched her and sent the porch swing sideways. Justine had been feeding the stray, hoping to find its litter of kittens in spite of her mother's disdain for extra mouths or creatures prone to parasites. She tried to smooth cat hair from her lap. She'd wanted everything to be perfect when she told her mom that she'd tracked down her father in Texas and used the neighbor's phone to call him."That thing's going to give you worms." Lula dropped her purse onto the porch. She hadn't been able to catch a ride from work. With a deep sigh, she untucked her blouse and undid the long green polyester skirt she'd ... Read More

  • Stratford-on-Odéon: Sylvia Beach and Shakespeare and Company
    • Abstract: Sylvia Beach, Shakespeare and Company's first location, No. 8 Rue du Dupuytren, ca. 1921, unknown photographer, Carlton Lake Collection, Harry Ransom Center, The University of Texas at Austin.Shakespeare and Company, Sylvia Beach's bookshop and lending library, had always been a "problematic little business," but in 1937, with the world turning its attention to war, staying open was becoming impossible. Most American expats had returned home, and many French citizens were unemployed, leaving few in Paris with spare money for books from English and American publishers. With the economy in a shambles—the value of the franc plummeted and inflation skyrocketed—store sales slowed to a trickle. "My business," Sylvia ... Read More

  • Climate Change: Scientific Evidence and the Industry of Denial
    • Abstract: Environmental issues entered the public discourse in a conspicuous way back in the 1970s with the media blitz on the dioxin contamination at Love Canal in 1978 and the Three Mile Island nuclear accident in 1979. More than nuclear, it was toxics that soon became the central environmental issue, with hundreds of hazardous waste sites dotting the country. Think of the Times Beach, Missouri, disaster in 1983. Not that nuclear power hasn't been a significant concern—consider the notoriously contaminated Hanford Site and the thirty-year battle to site a nuclear waste facility at Yucca Mountain, Nevada. How do you safely store nuclear waste for one million years'Yet today it's not toxic waste or nuclear waste that gets ... Read More
