May - August 2024


Nicola Mazzuia

1 story every 3 weeks from late May until the start of August

This issue is about ruptures, about the cracks that appear between us and our pasts, our futures and our selves. Imran Sarihasan and Navjotpal Kaur depict a young man caught in stillness and war. J.D. Isip swims out into the unknown. Gwen Burnyeat writes of navigating deadly chasms in politics. Bincy Mariya N tells of a chance encounter on the train home for Christmas. Finally, Fran Mascia-Lees traces the silences in her father's story.
