Spring issue reviewed by NewPages

June 19, 2013

The Spring 2013 issue of BLR recently received a lovely review on NewPages.com. Some of the work in the issue is highlighted:

- Kathryn Trueblood's prize-winning story, "The No-Tell Hotel," is called "a piece so convincing it sounds like creative nonfiction, and yet it is structured so cleanly that if it were cnf, we would commend its fidelity to conventions of the best literary fiction."
- "Megan Kimble’s “Click,” [a] work of creative nonfiction, feels like poetry, juxtaposing the shoulder pain of the moment with the accident that caused that pain, as well as projecting into the future."

The review also notes: "In this gracious issue, a score of poems and a dozen works of prose acknowledge the harshness of our material lives as they celebrate the power of the human spirit to meet that harshness with mercy and good intentions. Beautiful language only affirms the strength of our humanity."
