    'Our third issue of the year spans vast distances, taking readers from Canberra to Cambridge via Mexico and Manhattan. In fiction, Madeleine Watts, Kenneth Chong and Aniela Rodríquez share vivid stories of desire, withholding, and biblical revenge, while poets Iman Mersal and Jarad Bruinstroop offer perspectives on beauty and oppression. Essayist Kate Crowcroft contributes a piece that explores the history of the tongue, switching deftly between the personal and the archival. Robyn Creswell translates Mersal from Arabic, and Elizabeth Bryer translates Rodríguez from Spanish. ' (Publication summary)
