Chicago Review's New Italian Writing Issue
Over the year, the Chicago Review has put together some brilliant—and lasting—“new writing” issues. The one that jumps to mind is the Polish Fiction issue that Bill Martin guest edited, and which contains a number of Polish authors who have gone on to have full-length books published in English translation. (And a number of authors who should—or will—have their books translated in the near future.)
Well, continuing in that tradition, their spring issue is focused on New Italian Writing and includes pieces from a bunch of poets and fiction writers. (Here’s the entire Table of Contents.) To be honest, I don’t recognize many of these names, which is kind of the point, and kind of exciting.
Anyway, it’s worth checking out. And if we get a copy here at the office, we’ll definitely review it.
