We’re pleased to announce the forthcoming publication of The White Review No. 19. The new issue comes out at the end of the month, but to whet your appetite we’ve made some content available online. Read our interview with ALVARO ENRIGUE, a Mexican writer in New York, ALICE HATTRICK’s meditation on illness and intimacy, an excerpt from VIRGINIE DESPENTES’ scintillating new novel Vernon Subutex (trans. Frank Wynne), and new poems from SOPHIE ROBINSON. Exclusive to our online issue is a timely interview with artist HAJRA WAHEED and new poems from DAVID NASH.
Only available in the print issue are interviews with the philosopher ROSI BRAIDOTTI, on how the humanities can combat racism and sexism, and artist RACHEL MACLEAN, whose hyper-surreal dystopian videos offer a dark vision on the present times (and who also contributes a concertina insert of her recent prints). Long form essays by JACQUELINE FELDMAN, on feminist protest group Femen; and conceptual artist JILL MAGID on her stay at the house of the late Luis Barragán. THOMAS CLERC contributes a beautiful homage to his friend EDOUARD LEVE, whose writing has featured in previous issues of The White Review. The issue also includes new fiction by JASON SCHWARTZ, poetry from CA CONRAD, and art work from DAVID NOONAN and FRANCIS UPRITCHARD.
