Issue 147  Winter/Spring 2015

About this Issue: 

Issue 147 opens with Claudia Rankine and John Lucas's video essay "Situation 7." Here Rankine's words and Lucas's images combine to transform an everyday occurence, in this case a bus ride, into a singular and emotionally charged experience.  "What does suspicion do?" Rankine asks.  Wariness, distrust, and confusion haunt the work in 147. Our authors examine displacement, self-perception, and authenticity, and their discoveries reverberate throughout the issue.

With 147 we welcome a new poetry editor, Dane Hamann, who's curated a variety of talented poets. In addition to the distinguished fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and cinepoetry, we're also pleased to present a selection of paintings by Chicago artist and writer Dmitry Samarov. Our technical advisors have enhanced the website's functionality and appearance. We invite you to come in from the cold and spend some time with TriQuarterly.
