New England Review Features Contemporary South African Authors

December 12, 2017


MIDDLEBURY, Vt. – The winter issue of
New England Review begins with a selection of writing from 15 contemporary South African authors and translators who share their sense of place. Editor Carolyn Kuebler elaborates in her note to readers, “Some of these writers grew up after the laws of apartheid were dismantled, while others grew up believing they never would be. Some have emigrated, some have returned, and others have never lived anywhere else.” One piece marks a writer’s debut.

The new issue also includes the resurfaced book reviews of Twain, Pound, and others by English Modernist writer Mary Butts; work by nine poets all new to NER; and Rob White's dive into the world of anti-psychiatry and how it helps—or doesn't help—our living dead. 

Published by Middlebury College, New England Review is a nationally recognized literary journal that cultivates artistic excellence and innovation in contemporary writing and engages readers deeply in the literary arts through its quarterly publication, website, and public reading series.
