We are delighted to announce that Brick’s ninety-eighth issue, which will make its way to newsstands and mailboxes starting at the end of November, features a conversation between Elena Ferrante and Sheila Heti on writing, anonymity, bad memories, narcissism, truth, power, self-surveillance, and smoking cigarettes. Coinciding with the release of Ferrante’s book of non-fiction Frantumaglia, this exchange, translated by Ann Goldstein, provides an ideal corrective to the attempted unmasking you’ve been reading about of late. You really don’t want to miss this one: transport yourself over to our store and subscribe now.
Our next issue will also contain work by Pablo Neruda, Jan Zwicky, Obi Nwakanma, Javier Montes, Karen Solie, Marina Endicott, Paul Seesequasis, Kirsty Gunn, Forrest Gander, Sunila Galappatti, Lisa Moore, and many more. We’re also featuring a special section on “fixing” the plots of the great works of literature, a section we’re calling “Tom Sawyer Must Die.” We’re eager to share all this with you at the end of November, and if you’re in the Toronto area on December 5, consider coming to our launch to celebrate—stay tuned for details.
