The White Review No. 29 features interviews with poet Fanny Howe, novelist and memoirist Scholastique Mukasonga and artist Ingrid Pollard, who also provides the issue’s cover. We present new fiction by Booker Prize-shortlisted author of Real Life Brandon Taylor, Ilya Leutin (tr. Anna Aslanyan) and Elizabeth O’Connor, whose story ‘Woman With a White Pekingese’ is the winner of the White Review Short Story Prize 2020. Emily Berry’s essay ‘The Secret Country of Her Mind’ is a polyvocal account of agoraphobia in dialogue with photographer Jacqui Kenny; Caleb Azumah Nelson’s ‘Solace’ explores languages of mourning and expressions of community, while Victoria Adukwei Bulley’s ‘On Water’ traverses global colonial history, seeking new forms of kinship as she investigates her own lineage. Poetry series are contributed by Laura Elliott, Jennifer Lee Tsai and Jack Underwood, while series of artworks are presented from Adam Pendleton and Hervé Guibert.
