Unsettling whimsy, gravity, and grace: Photographer Rosamond Purcell's portfolio-the debut of her "Oscar" series-provides the visual key signature for our most symphonically ambitious gathering of voices yet. Fiction by Beth Bosworth, Josh Weil, Chitra Divakaruni, and Tony Eprile; poetry by Nick Flynn, Erica Funkhouser, Peter Balakian, and Jill McDonough; essays by Anna Journey and K. E. Duffin; and much more. Superb translations of Virgil, Raúl Zurita, Théophile Gautier, Antonio Tabucchi, and others bring striking accents to the weave.
