Somewhere Nowhere

Issue 45

Somewhere Nowhere offers compelling literature and art that promises to challenge the mind and tempt the heart. From Scott Rettberg's essay exploring the uneasy aesthetics of emerging digital technology to Keith Stahl's story probing familial tensions, readers will enjoy a variety of prose in this issue. Additionally, poetry from Neil Shepard, Aaron Novick and Elisa Karbin, among others, promises to delight and provoke. As always, this issue also includes several reviews longtime readers have come to expect.

Here is our web extra from the print edition, "Cemetery by the Sea," by Paul Valéry translated by Anna Schaffer.
