Issue 95

The new issue features a profile of MacArthur Genius Award–winning graphic novelist Gene Luen Yang, author of Boxers and Saints and American Born Chinese. Our web exclusive interview with Yang is here. Plus profiles of three Jesuit artists whose very different artistic styles all reflect Ignatian spirituality: sculptor Trung Pham, painter and sculptor Arturo Araujo, and portrait photographer Don Doll. With an interview with Canadian novelist Joy Kogawa on victims, perpetrators, and reconciliation. Also: a gorgeous braided essay by Susan Neville on prayer, color, addiction, and light; Robert Cording on how art lets us see reality; and Gregory Wolfe on Star Wars, gravity, infinity, and love. Poems by Abdourahman Waberi, Natasha Oladokun, Luci Shaw, and others. Fiction by Zeeva Bukai on power and social class in Orthodox Brooklyn; and by Jason Zencka on an unusual friendship between Wisconsin pastors in a university town. D.L. Mayfield reviews Kate Hennessy’s biography of her grandmother, Dorothy Day, Macy Halford’s book on the enduring personal and cultural influence of My Utmost for His Highest, and Valeria Luiselli’s Tell Me How It Ends, which explores the plight of unaccompanied minors fleeing Central America based on the author’s experience as a translator.
