you almost never see reviews of single stories anywhere. story collections, sure, but a single short story? rare.

anyway, edwidge danticat is great. while she's gotten her share of acclaim, it still doesn't seem proportional to her talent and wisdom.

  • 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.
