299.1 Winter Issue 2014

299.1 Winter Issue 2014 Cover

As always, we celebrate Black History Month (February) and Women’s History Month (March) in this first issue of the volume year with writing by African American women Allison Joseph and Mariahadessa Ekere Tallie as well as with the book and dvd reviews in our Synecdoche, Crosscuts, and Paeans columns.

Three of the short stories in this issue deal with personal accountability. “Naples” by Allegra Hyde centers on a woman who may have overheard the cries of a rape victim but is incapable of taking action; Philip Walford’s “The Memorialists” showcases the need to honor the dead and how such rituals fail us; and Jason Lee Brown’s “Goodwill” explores a tangled dysfunctional mix of attraction and exploitation.
