    "Fairhead and Coetzee have produced a collection that is distinguished by its crafting as well as its beauty. Their voices gather resonance in conversation, until the poems reveal a hunger for shared experience, and a receptiveness to the intimacies of each moment. Reading these poems at one sitting is akin to stumbling onto a recital by two very accomplished soloists—perhaps in a clearing, in a forest. This is a brave and beautiful book, and the cumulative impact of the poems is nothing short of astonishing."

    RSVP here.

    Guernica is currently assembling a special issue on the theme of deserts. In it, [they] hope to consider, among other things, diverse desert communities, climate and immigration issues, changing landscapes across the globe, water crises and desertification, wildlife, food and Internet deserts, the spiritual allure of the sand—and to take up the subject as powerful metaphor. The issue will include a mix of long-form nonfiction features (3,000-6,000 words) across memoir/essay/reportage, shorter dispatches, interviews, photo essays, fiction, and poetry.
