"And there will be singing"

A World of Writing from the "Massachusetts Review"

In celebration of its landmark sixtieth anniversary, the Massachusetts Review presents a collection of the best contemporary and emerging international writers and writers in translation, from MR's last decade. At a time when English-only readers too often know little about the rest of the world, this volume is a classroom in itself. This timely and essential anthology features fiction, essays, and poetry by Mia Couto, Tabish Khair, Menekşe Toprak, Olga Tokarczuk, and Kim Tae-Young, among others.

Reviews

"The Massachusetts Review has been a great boon in raising the profile of a number of key Catalan writers. The magazine's policy and practice are resolutely internationalist. I believe its combination of new writing in English and in translation is without parallel in the English-speaking world."—Peter Bush, translator of The Gray Notebook by Josep Pla

"What the Massachusetts Review has done these last ten years is a guide to our most important crossroads. Visit and revisit this new collection and you'll find yourself participating in a conversation of pleasing depth, one that just might help create a better future for all of us—no walls to be found here."—Edie Meidav, author of Kingdom of the Young

"Somehow, despite its venerable age, the Massachusetts Review remains one of the most provocative and relevant literary magazines I know. Thanks to its internationalist perspective and intellectual and aesthetic range, it offers an outstanding example of what an American literary magazine can be."—Geoffrey Brock, editor of the Arkansas International
