‘Georgia Review’ spring issue published

The recently released spring issue of The Georgia Review answers the question “Is there any such thing as a free lunch?” with a resounding “Yes–sort of!” in the form of a 105-page feature edition titled “Two-fers/Twofers.”

Some of the highlights from the journal include two new and unusual personal-critical essays on Eudora Welty; two essays on the scientific, cultural and political aftermaths of the historic Mount St. Helens eruption three decades ago; Mary Clearman Blew’s two versions of a childhood incident—one cast as fiction, the other as essay; a two-genre look—via poems and an interview—at Oprah Book Club author Robert Morgan; two reverse-image poems “In Praise of Surrealism” and “In Praise of the Ordinary” by Neil Carpathios; and a piece by Pulitzer Prize winner Maxine Kumin that is two poems presented in alternating stanzas.

This issue also includes a poem by Pulitzer Prize-winning UGA alumna Natasha Trethewey and Darrell Spencer’s short story “Squeeze Me, I Sing” about a couple’s determination to keep and raise a profoundly disabled newborn.

In the issue, photojournalist Kael Alford has 14 photographs of landscapes and communities being washed away by natural and manmade disasters and a 12-page commentary on the photo series.
