Literal: Latin American Voices

The new issue of Literal: Latin American Voices (winter 06/07) is just out and it is fantastic. Marking the 30th anniversary of the founding of Vuelta, Paz's juggernaut of a literary magazine, an essay by Maarten van Delden; also, an interview with Mexican "Crack" writer Jorge Volpi; writing by Jaime Moreno Villareal, and photographs by Pablo Ortiz Monasterio and (yes) Juan Rulfo. Kudos to founding editor Rose Mary Salum! (For more about Vuelta, by the way, have a look at Ilan Stavans' Octavio Paz: A Meditation.)
