This just in from Yiyun Li:
A Public Space, a new independent magazine of literature and culture,
founded by Brigid Hughes, the former Executive Editor of The Paris
Review, will hit the newsstand very soon. Working with Brigid as a
contributing editor to the magazine, I am greatly impressed by her
wisdom and ambition. Please support the magazine by spreading the word
out, by subscribing and submitting to the magazine, and by reading it.
In the debut issue, we will have a new essay from Marilynne Robinson on
the importance of fiction in our era, a Japanese profile featuring
interviews with Haruki Murakami and Motoyuki Shibata and stories from
young Japanese writers, new stories from Charles D’ambrosio (we got the
title story for his new collection!), Kelly Link, Tim O’Sullivan (first
publication!), and many others.
Do check out the website: http://www.apublicspace.org, for news and events. For
those of you who are in NYC, the magazine will have a launching event on
