Dear sx salon readers,
sx salon 24 is now available online. Please see our table of contents below.
In this issue we publish an edited version of a roundtable on digital publishing at the West Indian Literature Conference last October in which five editors of Caribbean digital platforms—Evelyn O’Callaghan, Kaiama L. Glover, Laurie N. Taylor, Patricia J. Saunders, and myself, Kelly Baker Josephs—discuss managing the potentials and pitfalls of digital platforms. In Reviews, we cover new publications in the field: Rachel L. Mordecai reviews Rosario Ferré’s Memoir, translated by Suzanne Hintz and Benigno Trigo; Ryan Joyce reviews Première nuit: Une anthologie du désir and Volcaniques: Une anthologie du plaisir, both edited by Léonora Miano; Alison Mc Letchie reviews Maurice St. Pierre’s Eric Williams and the Anticolonial Tradition: The Making of a Diasporan Intellectual; and Janelle Rodriques reviews Robert Antoni’s As Flies to Whatless Boys. Also included in this section is a review essay by Gary Wilder on questions of freedom and forms of marronage.
In the interview section of this issue, Opal Palmer Adisa reviews Shara McCallum’s newest collection of poetry, Madwoman, and includes a short conversation with the poet. We also publish here Nathan H. Dize’s interview of Susan Pickford, translator of Anacaona by Jean Métellus. This interview resonates with our discussion last issue of literary translation.
In Poetry & Prose, we publish new poetry by G. A. E. Griffin and short fiction by Kirk Budhooram. Please enjoy the variety of works included here.
Kelly Baker Josephs
