In Grand Street's spring 2004 issue, lies, tricks, and deceit speak louder than truth. Edward P. Jones invokes the grand deceiver, the Devil himself, in his new short story "The Devil Swims Across the Anacostia River."
Don Delillo riffs on Glenn Gould, Thelonius Monk, Thomas Bernhard, and the bleak isolation of creative vision. In a newly translated selection from his novel Distant Star, Roberto Bolano recounts the literary and revolutionary travails of the enigmatic Chilean author Juan Stein. While Barcelonan Enrique Vila-Matas, in Bartleby & Co., tracks the history of artists who, in the end, "prefer not to." Also in this issue are: photographs of Edward James's surrealist sanctuary Las Pozas; portfolios by Gillian Wearing, Anita Dube, and James Ensor; and poems by Major Jackson, Alice Oswald, and Grover Amen.
