Beschreibung

A diverse anthology of new fiction, essays, poetry, and photography exploring the subject of family from this "illustrious new literary journal" (Vogue.com).

Following his acclaimed debut issue of collected writing on the theme of "Arrival," the renowned editor and critic John Freeman circles a topic of constantly shifting definitions and endless fascination for writers: family.

In an essay called "Crossroads," Aminatta Forna muses on the legacy of slavery as she settles her family in Washington, DC-a place where she is routinely accused of cutting in line when she stands next to her white husband. Award-winning novelist Claire Vaye Watkins delivers a stunning portrait of a woman in the throes of postpartum depression. Booker Prize winner Marlon James takes the focus off absent fathers to write about his mother, who calls to sing him happy birthday every year. Novelist Claire Messud's writes of the two four-legged tyrants in her home; Sandra Cisneros muses about her extended family of past lovers; and Aleksandar Hemon tells the story of his uncle's desperate attempt to remain a communist despite decades in the Soviet gulag.

With outstanding, never-before-published pieces of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry from literary heavyweights and up-and-coming writers alike,Freeman's: Familycollects the most amusing, heartbreaking, and probing stories about family life emerging today.

John Freeman was the editor of Granta until 2013. His books include How to Read a Novelist and Tales of Two Cities: the Best and Worst of Times in Today's New York. He is executive editor at the Literary Hub and teaches at the New School and New York University. His work has appeared in the New Yorker, the New York Times, and the Paris Review.
