Anything-but-alphabetical Africa. A vividly variegated portfolio (in print and online) of fiction from the continent that Alexander miraculously overlooked, including new work from Henrietta Rose-Innes, Helon Habila, Doreen Baingana, and many others. The art feature and cover by Victor Ekpuk telegraph the sensuous immediacy and coded layers of this presentation. The issue also includes fiction by Joan Wickersham and Sarah Gaddis; poems by C. K. Williams, Kevin Young, Kate Northrop, and others; reflections on poetry by Carol Moldaw and Anton Vander Zee; as well as tributes to Barry Hannah by Sven Birkerts and William Giraldi.

Both Williams’s “A Hundred Bones” and Julianna Baggott’s “To My Lover, Concerning the Yird-Swine” were chosen for The Best American Poetry 2011. Rose-Innes’s “Homing”and Wickersham’s “The Boys’ School, or The News from Spain” were chosen for The Best American Nonrequired Reading 2011.
