What We Don’t Talk About When We Talk About War
When writers address the subject of war, they face tough choices about what material to include and how to give voice to the unspeakable. The writer’s job, then, is to examine what drives nations into war, how civilians as well as soldiers respond to war, and the lasting impacts on individuals and society that are ignored or under-reported. Laura Harrington, author of Alice Bliss, and John A. Parrish, M.D. author of Autopsy of War, will read excerpts from their work and discuss writing about war from their respective points of view, touching on how personal experience and memory have affected their work and their lives.
Issue 5 of CONSEQUENCE features fiction by David Abrams, Homero Aridjis, Andrew Barlow, Anne Korkeakivi, and Margaret Luongo; poetry by Peter Balakian, Martha Collins, Jill McDonough, Ed Ochester, Joyce Peseroff, and Lee Sharkey; non-fiction by Stephen Dau, Lee Hancock, Judith Hertog, Joan Stack Kovach, and Elizabeth Weber; translations by Erica Mena, Nguyen Ba Chung, Afaa Michael Weaver, and Bruce Weigl; and art by Laylah Ali.
