“Anniversary” in The Georgia Review

Summer09My short story “Anniversary” is in the just-released summer 2009 issue of The Georgia Review, one of the hands-down best literary journals in the country! Here’s a little bit from their website:

Since its inception in 1947, The Georgia Review has grown steadily to its current position as one of America’s premier journals of arts and letters. Each quarterly issue offers a rich gathering of stories, essays, poems, book reviews, and visual art orchestrated to invite and sustain repeated readings. Is it any wonder that over seventy percent of our readers add our issues to their permanent libraries? Or that The Review won the 1986 National Magazine Award in Fiction for stories by Mary Hood, Lee K. Abbott, and Gary Gildner, and the 2007 National Magazine Award in Essays for Michael Donohue’s “Russell and Mary.”

Writers featured in the Review range from Nobel laureates and Pulitzer Prize winners to the most deserving newer voices–including many who have never published before. Such well-known figures as Eudora Welty, John Edgar Wideman, Eavan Boland, William Stafford, Judith Ortiz Cofer, and Philip Levine join emerging writers like Gordon Johnston and Brad Barkley in the quarterly that Magazines for Libraries calls “one of the best bargains in American publishing.”

According to the Utne Reader, “Amid the legion of look-alike mags, The Georgia Review asserts a unique identity: . . . substance in an age of surface.” And the London Times Literary Supplement reports: “The Georgia Review goes from strength to varied strength. Reading issues entire . . . brings home the fact that this journal sets the standard of literary, editorial, and graphic excellence. . . . With differing emphases and in different ways, The Georgia Review seems at times to talk to us all.”
