Our new issue features fiction from Charles Baxter, Joyce Carol Oates, Stephen Dixon, and Corinna Vallianatos. This special anniversary edition also includes Wilde About Whitman, a two-act play from David Simpatico, and Spectres, a chapbook of poetry from John Kinsella. We round out the issue with an interview with novelist and screenwriter George Pelecanos (The Wire, Treme, and The Deuce).
"This issue of The Idaho Review is a gem; it begins in glory and the energy never sags. Strong characters, stories with satisfying endings, and beautiful writing make this collection eminently worth buying, keeping, and giving to your best reading friends."
