Read full description of the books Oranges & Sardines Issue 3, Winter 2008:Susceptible as I am to eye candy, I would have picked up the Winter 2008 issue of Oranges & Sardines on the cover alone-- but since I am a reader, of course I had to check out the inside as well and good thing I did; however, I had nothing to worry about as Oranges & Sardines never lets me down.
Beauty and brains-- that's what this issue is all about. The artwork inside had me "googling" all night just to find more work from these artists and the poetry had me kicking myself for not writing more. This issue (with its artwork galore, with its poetry, AND a Lucille Clifton interview) has banished my writers' block. I am truly inspired by this issue and I cannot wait to start from the beginning to read it all over again-- and I don't do that too often.
PS: I am now Ignat Ignatov's biggest fan.
