We're delighted to be unveiling our latest online issue today, featuring an interview with Irish artist Gerard Byrne. His latest work, currently on show at Mead Gallery at the Warwick Arts Centre, takes as a starting point a large-scale nineteenth-century diorama in a half-forgotten natural history museum in Sweden, which depicts the Nordic wilderness in 3D fantasy form, with painted oceans, papier-mâché cliffs and taxidermied birds. Also online this month, we're excited to publish young South African novelist Masande Ntshanga for the first time in the UK, alongside newly translated fiction from Swedish author Lina Wolff (translated by Frank Perry), whose collection Brett Easton Ellis and the Other Dogs is just out with And Other Stories. Elsewhere we have a piece by long-time White Review contributor Alice Hattrick on Jordan Baseman's films, currently exhibited at TAP in Southend-on-Sea; and new poetry by the American poet and member of Ugly Duckling Press collective Anna Moschovakis.
