Artist Rosaire Appel’s arresting portfolio, which she calls “an abstract comic,” makes a provocatively apt counterweight to a gathering of work that is enticingly specific and serious. AGNI 82 is detail-rich, with memoir essays by Susan McCallum-Smith and Sheila Kohler; a Woolfian meditation on Woolf by Andrea Barrett; and diversely concrete fictions by Scott Nadelson, Colin Fleming, Malerie Willens and Ihab Hassan, to name a few. An especially full catalogue of poetry includes four translations, as well as work—some of it comic, yes—by Nin Andrews, Bob Hicok, Kathleen Graber, Joan Wickersham, and many others.
