In our afternoon reading: a review of Valeria Luiselli’s new novel, interviews with Dawn Raffel and Pam Houston, and more.
Dolan Morgan’s new story collection Insignificana includes 22 illustrations by the author. To celebrate the release of the book, Morgan asked three of his favorite writers to create responses to the images. Poet Allyson Paty, fiction writer Jessica Lee Richardson, and musician Emilyn Brodsky each received three illustrations and free reign to do whatever they want. Below, find the first set of illustrations and Paty’s reply.
