Brick is an international literary journal published twice a year out of Toronto. With a focus on literary non-fiction—and a willingness to stray when our hearts are taken—the magazine prizes the personal voice and celebrates life, art, and the written word with the most invigorating and challenging essays, interviews, translations, memoirs, belles lettres, and unusual musings we can get our hands on.

In this issue:

  • Kevin Adonis Browne breathes subtext and song
  • Amanda Mei Kim hops back in the van
  • Yasmin Ladha on cowboy songs, frankincense,
    and running errands
  • José Teodoro can dream again in Buenos Aires
  • Lina Meruane on the tyranny of children
  • Eleanor Wachtel interviews Maaza Mengiste
