297.3 Summer Issue 2012

297.3 Summer Issue 2012 Cover

Welcome to the annual summer fiction issue: seven stories, many of them dealing with altered states of dislocation. Among the highlights: Jill Rosenberg’s “Now We’re Photogenic” deals with the politics of dress and identity; Terri Brown-Davidson’s “Mania” portrays a defamiliarized world, the gifted and detached retina of legendary photographer Diane Arbus; Tamara Shores’s “The Endurance” features a dream-like voice showcasing a relationship that is poignant and troubling; and Teresa Milbrodt’s “On the Train” explores the anxiety and guilt of a woman escaping an intensely emotionally crippling relationship with her mother and mentally challenged brother.

We also honor Hispanic American Heritage Month, as always, with poems by Lorena Knight, Suzanne Frischkorn, and Ricardo Pau-Llosa, as well as reviews of books by a Puertoriqueña and a Chicano in our Synecdoche column.
