The White Review No. 30 features longform interviews with the artist Toyin Ojih Odutola (who also provides the issue’s cover), novelist and playwright Marie NDiaye and short-story writer, essayist and translator Lydia Davis. It includes new fiction by Laura Grace Ford, Preti Taneja and Can Xue (in translation from Chinese by Karen Gernant and Chen Zeping), series of poetry by Paula Bohince, Eiffel Gao and Safwan Khatib, and series of artworks by Ming Smith and Silke Otto-Knapp. Sofia Samatar reflects on centuries of global writing about climate change, Jessica Zhan Mei Yu critiques the history of Australia’s anti-Asian immigration policy in a powerful personal essay, and Stanley Wolukau-Wanambwa discusses the political import of Rabih Mroué’s art, and its ongoing resonance with experiences of police brutality across the world. The issue marks the tenth anniversary of the magazine’s foundation.
