Your Weekly Forecast: Sherwood Anderson

“The fruition of the year had come and the night should have been fine with a moon in the sky and the crisp sharp promise of frost in the air, but it wasn’t that way. It rained and little puddles of water shone under the street lamps on Main Street. In the woods in the [...]

“Still, I had also judged the jungle of both banks quite impenetrable — and yet eyes were in it, eyes that had seen us.”

Your Weekly Forecast: Vladimir Nabokov

“The day, a compunctious Sunday after a week of blizzards, had been part jewel, part mud. In the midst of my usual afternoon stroll through the small hilly town attached to the girls’ college where I taught French literature, I had stopped to watch a family of brilliant icicles drip-dripping from the eaves of a [...]

Your Weekly Forecast: Leni Zumas

“Snowflakes salted the early dark, the street a white field cut by tires and boots. A siren, laughter, throbs of music from the takeout. Our mother thought my brother’s apartment was too loud, not guessing that Riley used the noise for company. Snow was an ear feather. Airplanes blinked in the sky.” —Leni Zumas, The [...]

The Weather Report: Thomas Pynchon

“Santa Anas had been blowing all the smog out of downtown L.A., funneling between the Hollywood and Puente Hills on westward through Gordita Beach and out to sea, and this had been going on for what seemed like weeks now. Offshore winds had been too strong to be doing the surf much good, but surfers [...]

Issue #57: WILD

In our mitigated, cultivated world, is it possible to still be wild? With no wilderness, will our natures turn tame? These are two of the challenges we threw out for our Wild issue, and because writers are creative, and therefore untamed, they came back to us with very different answers. Olena Kalytiak Davis pushes into [...]

A Father and Daughter Quit the Rat Race: An Excerpt from Possum Living

Issue #56: Summer Reading

The best writers not only create worlds beyond our imagination but also lead us into places we’d never dare venture alone.

A Protest

Friday, April 5, 2013: I’m parked in the University of Houston’s chancellor’s office, on the red-and-gold carpeted floor, participating in a sit-in organized by the graduate students.

About The Cover: Brin Levinson

In the war between man and the natural world, it would appear, judging from Brin Levinson’s unpeopled, postapocalyptic cityscapes, nature has won. Levinson’s worlds—washed in dour grays, ochre, and sepia brown—suggest the landscape before us is already becoming a relic. The brightest colors, the occasional burst of blue sky that breaks out from behind cloud-crowded [...]
