Issue 49 / Summer 2013
Strange-but-true stories of near misses
Issue #49 is devoted to hair-raising stories of near misses. Writers reflect on narrow escapes from a plane crash, youthful recklessness, and a train barreling down on the station.
The rest of the issue is a writer’s survival guide, with notes on making dialogue work, a love letter to literary letters, Roxane Gay on the dangers of disclosure, and a visual guide to the personal essay. Plus, we’re stalking Philip Roth.
