18 / Intimate Details

Bringing memory to life

The essays published in this issue represent survival and change, expressed through dramatic stories and intimacy of detail.

In “Second Chances,” Melissa Block, a breast cancer survivor, is off on her own quest to Vietnam with a crew of plastic surgeons, while Philip Gerard’s journey, “Adventures in Celestial Navigation,” captures the intimacy of sailing and seeing blindly at night. Aine Greaney travels with her father on a mission of connection and maturity through a sensory panorama of Ireland. In “Bridges,” Sarah Massey-Warren thrusts her readers into the stark and vivid reality of Elko, Nevada, while Russell Tomlin, in “Two Years,” leads us into Togo, West Africa, on a Peace Corps mission.
