Please join us for the launch of The White Review No. 17 at Bold Tendencies, Peckham.
The evening will feature readings by Alexander Christie-Miller, Martin MacInnes, Sophie Mackintosh and George Szirtes. There will be drinks.
The seventeenth print edition – now available for pre-order via our website – features interviews with the great George Saunders and film-maker and photographer Stan Douglas; fiction by Kyle Coma-Thompson, Joanna Kavenna, Sophie Mackintosh and Clemens Meyer; the final instalment of Caleb Klaces’ three-part poem (which we have published in serial form over the past two years), plus poems by Galina Rymbu; art from Batia Suter and Benoît Maire; Alexander-Christie-Miller’s history of the lost island of Ada Kaleh, and Patrick Langley’s report from Oberhausen Film Festival.
ALEXANDER CHRISTIE-MILLER is a writer and journalist based in Istanbul. His writing about Turkish politics and culture has been published in Newsweek, the Times, the Atlantic, and other publications. He is a regular contributor to The White Review.
SOPHIE MACKINTOSH is the winner of the 2016 White Review Short Story Prize for ‘Grace’, which features in the latest issue. She is currently working on a novel about an all-female community living on an oil-rig at the end of the world.
MARTIN MACINNES is a writer living in Edinburgh. His speculative fiction about human identity and the natural world has been published in numerous journals and anthologies. His debut novel, Infinite Ground, is published by Atlantic Books in August 2016.
GEORGE SZIRTES’s many books of poetry have won prizes including the T. S. Eliot Prize (2004), for which he was again shortlisted for Bad Machine (2013). His translation of Satantango by László Krasznahorkai (whom he interviewed for The White Review) was awarded the Best Translated Book Award in the US. The act of translation is, he thinks, bound to involve fidelity, ambiguity, confusion and betrayal.
Please RSVP to email@example.com or via Facebook. Readings will begin at 7.30 p.m. There will be drinks.
