Your Satisfaction is Guaranteed:
The Review of Contemporary Fiction is a tri-quarterly journal that features critical essays on fiction writers whose work resists convention and easy categorization. The Review's aesthetic focus has been called many things—postmodern, experimental, avant-garde, metafictional, subversive—but in bringing this aesthetic to a wider audience it also seeks to expose the artificial barriers that exist between and within cultures. To this end, the Review has a special affinity for the works of foreign writers who may otherwise go unread in the United States, as well as American writers whose work has gone unchampioned in their own country. An extensive book review section also covers recent works of innovative writing. Above all, the Review of Contemporary Fiction attempts to expand readers' notions of what fiction is and what it can do.
In 2008, the Review will continue to offer new issues dedicated to twentieth-century fiction from countries around the world. In the spirit of our Fall 2007 Australian Fiction issue, the Spring 2008 issue will feature stories and essays from Catalonia, edited by Catalan scholar Jaume Subirana Ortín and with an introduction by Mary Ann Newman, Director of the Catalan Center at NYU. Our hope is that by focusing on very contemporary work from these regions, the Review of Contemporary Fiction will provide readers a unique opportunity to view both the life and art that is happening right now around the world.
