Great Scott!

Today, I'd like to highlight Volume 25, Number 1 -- our 25th anniversary issue from Summer 2003. It features the likes of Sherman Alexie, Marilyn Chin, Stuart Dybek, Mark Halliday, Michael Martone, and Gary Soto. There's also an interview with poet Lucia Perillo. It's quite an impressive tome at 290 pages (that's almost a hundred more pages than our most recent issue!).

The following authors are also featured: 

Julianna Baggott – Her most recent novel, Which Brings Me to You, is a confessional co-written with Steve Almond, Lizzie Borden in Love: Poems in Women’s Voices, and, most recently, The Pretend Wife, written as Bridget Asher.

Mary Jo Bang – Her book Elegy came out in 2007 from Graywolf Press, and has gotten some great reviews. She was also published in the March 30, 2009 issue of the New Yorker (here). She received the Guggenheim fellowship in 2004.
Terrance Hayes – He has published two books of poetry since his publication in IR: the well-known and reviewed Wind in a Box and, in March of this year, Lighthead, both from Penguin. He received a Guggenheim fellowship in 2009.

Ray Gonzalez –After his publication in IR, he has published Human Crying Daisies, The Religion of Hands, and Consideration of the Guitar.
