 In this issue, we take stock to celebrate our "terrible twos" by republishing a selection of our most popular stories. Ana Gutiérriez recounts the story of Denise and her journey through sex work in London, and the dilemmas of lying and caring. Anand Pandian follows a plastic fragment found by accident in the waters off the shore of Greece. Lana Askari films memories of war, death and dislocation. Noha Fikry returns to the human and non-human relationships that create meaning in a Cairo home. Alexandros Plasatis sends us on a frantic search for love from one end of Greece to the other.
