A Public Space: No. 29
Editor: Brigid Hughes
Publisher: A Public Space (2021)
The winter issue of the award-winning literary and arts magazine. With fiction from Jhumpa Lahiri (written in Italian and translated by the author), David Hayden, and Steven Millhauser; the poetry of Colm Tóibín; the debut of Kat Thackray; a seventh-century classic by al-Shammakh ibn Dirar, translated from the Arabic by David Larsen; and a celebration of the next generation of talent, with work selected by inaugural Editorial Fellow Taylor Michael and a portfolio of A Public Space Writing Fellows.
In these times of fragments and fragmented times, what are the shapes of our comfort? Built and imagined. What gives boundaries and connection, healing and shelter, familiar pathways and points of rebellion.
