Issue 38 is a real beauty, with stories pulled in from all over the world—a grand tour, in prose, of a dozen places you have perhaps neglected to visit, up to now! There is Ariel Dorfman in Paris, with one eye on Chile, Bisi Adjapon in Ghana, Chanan Tigay with the Israeli Arabs of the Desert Scouts Brigade, Nathaniel Rich exploring the Northeast Kingdom, Steven Millhauser somewhere far away, deep, deep in the woods, and new fiction from Dave Eggers—and more stories, besides, plus a comic and color photography and a cover that'll earn you admiring glances in whatever environment you're in. Don't even think about missing this one.

There are three different covers for this issue. Which color our warehouse sends to you is completely randomized. Your local independent bookstore just might have all three.
