More > elliptical, musical. We had the privilege of working with fourteen renowned writers; now we invite you to peruse this collection--to dock, to step onto the pier, to explore this new world of rapturous lyricism: “just like papayas on a tree / many ships have landed / at the coffee table in the café // another ship / slung a river over his shoulder // they have turned the tables / into a harbour.” In addition, author of Snowmen Losing Weight Noah Falck writes, "The writing is surprising, bright, and mysterious. It weaves playfulness and experimentation, but also gives the reader moments both frightening and sincere. Inside the pages we are told, “the lake eats people.” This issue could work as a sort of lake, a lake that you’d be happy to be swallowed by." For more information: www.postscriptjournal.com< Less
