Issue 90

Featuring Sedrick Huckaby’s loving, monumental portraits of his family and neighbors in Fort Worth. Morgan Meis considers the provocative installation art of confessional British superstar Tracey Emin, whose beds, tents, quilts, and fabric art conceal a warm heart under a prickly exterior. Camellia Freeman reads Ta-Nehisi Coates, Maggie Nelson, and Christina Crosby, and considers what Christians can learn from atheists. In fiction: Uzbek writer Hamid Ismailov’s fable about a holy man and a mermaid, and Valerie Sayers’s story spanning the decades between Black Power and Black Lives Matter—from the point of view of a sleepy lowcountry town. Jonathan McGregor remembers his youthful exploration of the Internet, his ensuing love of Kierkegaard, and how it grew. Martha Park considers electrocution and the pursuit of holiness in Tennessee. Hugh Cook interviews Canadian Mennonite novelist and First Nations advocate Rudy Wiebe. Work in translation supported by a grant from the NEA.
