Issue 1 features recent work by three of Scotland's leading authors (W.N.
Alan Jamieson and Laura
Marney); translations by Suzanne
Jill Levine, who has also contributed some of her own work, and Thalia
Pandiri; previously unpublished fiction by Lydia
Josipovici and Carol
Novack; new poetry by George
Szirtes; and an essay on the Italian author, Curzio Malaparte, by
Gunn. All of these contributions are published alongside artwork by
the review's Art Editor, Calum
Colvin, the distinguished Scottish artist.
We hope that you will return to visit us three months from now. Writers
do not exist in a void and literature is a collaborative process, a cross-fertilization
of perceptions and ideas between the author and the reading public.
