Wow "can't forget the motor city" is great. I think the main thing people will note that differentiates it from "ruin porn" is the people, but I loved that the first three images, and several of the others, were of natural settings. Thanks for the tip!

I hate the expression "novels in translation", it is a ghettoizition that I cannot stand.

  • 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.
