V17N2 

Fall 2017

(V17N2)

BLR's latest issue, on the theme of "Finding Home: Family & Connections," features essays by KJ Dell'Antonia, who describes her years reading family stories—both tragic and prosaic—for the Motherlode blog of the New York Times, and Perri Klass, who explores the role reversals that doctors experience when they become the hovering family member of a patient. Other talented authors include Ann Russell and Stephanie Wrobel, both of whom count this issue as their first story publication; Rachel Hadas, who contributes a book review: "What Good Will This Knowledge Do You? Four Poets on Illness"; and poets Ted Kooser, Kelly DuMar, Thomas March, and more.
