The New Issue of NER Has Arrived
Welcome to the first issue of New England Review’s volume 36, the first volume of NER available in print and digital formats for all devices.
Sixteen poems by contemporary writers both new and renowned:
Anders Carlson-Wee • Jennifer Chang • Steven Cramer • Jehanne Dubrow • Daisy Fried • Nick Lantz • William Logan • Erin Lynch • Cate Marvin • Emilia Phillips • John Poch • Kevin Prufer • Ocean Vuong • C. K. Williams
Fiction writers—all new to the pages of NER—Mario J. Gonzales, Brendan McKennedy, Carolyn Page, J. T. Price, Lore Segal, and Lisa Taddeo bring us stories from the poorest to the most privileged corners of life in the city, and share tales of the power of music and the power of words, of memories planted along a dusty road, and of a world too watery for anything but the ark of Noah himself.
