Back Issues


Issue 90


Featuring up-and-coming painter Sedrick Huckaby’s loving, monumental portraits of his family and neighbors in Fort Worth—and of the quilts made by the matriarchs whose love and care sustains their community. Also, 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. Milton Fellow Camellia Freeman reads Ta-Nehisi Coates, Maggie Nelson, and Christina Crosby, and considers what Christians can learn from atheists. Gregory Wolfe describes finding himself in Don Quixote, and also finding the legacy of the father whose perceptions shaped him. 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. Traci Brimhall reports on breastfeeding in ancient Rome—braided with a memoir of her own complicated mother. Martha Park considers electrocution and the pursuit of holiness in Tennessee. Hugh Cook interviews Canadian Mennonite novelist and First Nations advocate Rudy Wiebe. Also: poems on museum going, medieval monsters, tourism in Israel, and insect life by Richard Jones, Susan L. Miller, Richard Chess, Hailey Leithauser, and others. Work in translation supported by a grant from the NEA.
