Malahat Review 208 (Fall 2019) Digital Edition


This fall issue features a Halloween party in Jason Jobin’s 2019 Far Horizons Award for Short Fiction winning story, “Triage.” People exist as multiple selves in Wafa Al-Harbi’s micro-fictions, “1. Entanglement,” and “2. Yearning,” translated from the Arabic by Essam M. Al-Jassim. D.A. Lockhart discusses Waawiiyaatanong, a place now split by a settler colonialist border in his essay, “From River’s Edge: Detroit the Other, Detroit the Centre,” while Yilin Wang maps family fractures in her story, “Fault Lines.” Alyda Faber brings her mother to life on the page in “Portrait of my mother as Alex Lifeson,” Andrea Bennett “let[s] [her] mother bloom” in “Before blueberries grow,” and Chinua Ezenwa-Ohaeto writes “after a teenage mother during the Boko Haram raids” in his poem, “The Teenager Who Became My Mother.” “Dying is not an abstract art” in Catherine Graham’s “Guide to a Heartbird,” Jun-long Lee details decay in “Lightcarrion,” and O-Jeremiah Agbaakin rolls “grief into silence into grief” in “portrait of a word as a half-eaten cud.” Ashley Hynd wonders, “if no one knows / you are missing / does anyone go look for you” in her poem, “The Process of Growth.”

Watch the leaves turn with reviews of books by Cassidy McFadzean, Sarah de Leeuw, Philip Huynh, Brian Harvey, and more!
