This May online issue features Owen Booth's short story 'I Told You I'd Buy You Anything You Wanted So You Asked For A Submarine Fleet', winner of the 2015 White Review Short Story Prize. The story will also appear in the next print issue of the magazine. We're also excited to present an excerpt from Argentinian novelist Alan Pauls's forthcoming novel, A History of Money. We also have an interview with Maggie Nelson on her writing practice, motherhood, queerness and representation, and a conversation between Catherine Lacey and Will Chancellor, two debut novelists. We also publish Bidoun contributing editor Anna della Subin's essay on Ras Tafari. Finally, we are excited to publish Kirill Medvedev's long prose poem, 'Europe' – a poet his translator, Keith Gessen, has described as the 'first authentic post-Soviet writer'. We also feature the paintings of (E-E) Evgenij Kozlov, a member of the avant-garde ‘New Artists’ movement that sprang out of the St Petersburg arts scene in the early 1980s.
