Overview

The Fall 2007 issue of Ploughshares, guest-edited by Andrea Barrett. Ploughshares, a journal of new writing, is guest-edited serially by prominent writers who explore different and personal visions, aesthetics, and literary circles.

National Book Award winner Andrea Barrett (Ship Fever, The Voyage of the Narwhal) compiles this fiction issue of Ploughshares. In her Introduction, Barrett writes that, while editing the issue, and "reading so many complex and resonant stories, I chose those in which precise language restores what we otherwise, out of habit, fail to notice. Those that capture the mystery of metamorphosis; those in which characters are transformed by love, rage, grief, exile, politics, religion, art."

The issue includes stories by acclaimed authors Bret Anthony Johnson ("Republican"), Ellen Litman ("The Trajectory of Frying Pans"), Paul Yoon ("And We Will Be Here"), and many others.
