Vast spans, subtle scapes. Tom Burckhardt’s stunning art feature, its images ranging from American urban to the Arctics and Asias of the imagination, announces the range of this issue. Richard Tillinghast’s real-life Istanbul jostles Kenneth Wong’s fictional Rangoon and Tomas Tranströmer’s lyric Swedish meditations. David Gates’s voice-fugue channels Samuel Beckett, and Kim Addonizio moves the spirit of Chet Baker through her lines of longing and loss. Stories by Peter LaSalle, Edith Pearlman, Magdalena Tulli, Vince Passaro, and others. Poets include Stuart Dischell, Karl Kirchwey, and Debra Nystrom. Essays: Lia Purpura, Marie Mutsuki Mockett, and William Pierce.

Mockett’s “Letter from a Japanese Crematorium” was chosen for The Best Creative Nonfiction 2009. Also in this issue are Tom Sleigh’s “At the Pool,” chosen for The Best American Poetry 2009, and Alex Lemon’s “from Hallelujah Blackout,” chosen for The Best American Poetry 2008.
