    A literary journal for the hip-hop generation

    This first issue of Bronx Biannual features an array of writers -- talented music journalists like Michael Gonzales, veteran fiction writers like Adam Mansbach and one of hip-hop's finest, KRS-One. My favorite piece is 'Nothing Can Remain Unchanged,' a short story by emerging fiction writer Dana Crum. The descriptions in the story put me right there, and the psychological portrayals of the different characters made me care about them and their struggles. Though the story thoroughly depicts the inner city, it also deals with those universal themes -- friendship, abandonment, change -- that unite us all. As for the first issue as a whole, my only complaint is that there was so little poetry. Given the poetic nature of the best hip-hop lyrics, there should be a fair amount of poetry in any hip-hop literary journal. Hopefully, we'll get more poetry in the next issue. All in all, this first issue is a strong start. And what better title for a hip-hop lit journal than 'Bronx Biannual.' The Bronx gave birth to hip-hop music. The music has spread all over the world, but it all started in the Boogie Down...

    This is the first literary journal in years that has shown some kind of freshness. Walking the fine line between fine art and street culture, Bronx Biannual is a bold statement coming straight from hip-hop loving writers like Greg Tate, Adam Mansbach and Donnell Alexander. Especially dug the freaky '80s funk of writer Michael A. Gonzales with his bugged-out story 'Sweet Thing Superhero.' Overall, this book was wonderful.
