you lucky dog, reading "the death of speedy" for the first time!

First you place Palomar in Mexico, then you say it is in Central America.

It may interest you to know that:
1. Mexico is NOT in Central America
2. Palomar is not in Mexico OR Central America. Gilbert has deliberately kept the matter of Palomar's location vague.

  • Isak is a space to celebrate tales and truth in the curious, joyful way embodied by the writer for which it is named. The name "Isak," after all, means "laughter," as she was fond of pointing out.

    By tales, I mean fiction (especially short fiction), as well as other literary and artistic narratives. By truth, I mean the world in which we live. I especially have my eye on creative social justice.
