A Trio of Pieces
POETRY, FICTION, AND AN INTERVIEW WITH THE EXTRAORDINARY JAMES SALLIS


GET ALONG HOME
"Seeing where her eyes went, I said: It's all right. I arranged her gown about her, helped her onto the bed pan. Flesh on hips and stomach had collapsed, folding in on itself like a tent being taken down. She seemed almost weightless. Breasts, too, hung limp and deflated. Our selves, our identities, are so linked to sexuality. When we no longer have that, in a sense I suppose we become something else." Read this exceptional short story by James Sallis.

AT A HARD RIGHT ANGLE: AN INTERVIEW WITH JAMES SALLIS
"We believed we had a mission. We were Young Turks, over-talented, disrespectful; mavericks spurring ourselves and others to go ever faster, ever further. Now, of course, the Young Turks have turned to old farts, the wild horses to tame swaybacks. But we're still out there trying our best to give a good ride." Richard Marshall interviews James Sallis.

FIVE POEMS
"Now at last you can unpack / the luggage of the heart, / roll up and put away / these ill-fitting clothes, / this loose second skin / too long lived in." Five poems by world-famous James Sallis.
