The place where I truly feel at home is in a book. This is where the real panoramas are. The landscapes of the human imagination. Oceans, raging rivers, philosophies, forests. Language is a wilderness and books are their reserves. —John Olson

What is there in history but a shape of being? A language structure that is place with its multiple meanings of places within place. —Diane Glancy

The world is in the midst of the largest migration of people since World War II. Due to war and political oppression, many of them will never return to their homelands. Others, like Native Americans in the Americas, have watched as wave after wave of newcomers have come on their land and claimed it as their own. The United States attracts people from all over the world to use as labor, but then denies many of them a legal opportunity to establish homes and raise families. Is home a place or a dream of sanctuary? A tarp, bedroll or car parked on the side of the freeway? A ranch you inherited? People you love? A state of mind? An elusive definition of space or location that only the privileged can afford to claim? In Aleppo, “Abu Hussein, a man in his 50s, was remarkably cheerful as he stood with his wife Umm Hussein and looked down from their balcony on to the rubble that makes his street impassable for any vehicle. ‘Nothing is better or more beautiful than our home,’ he said. ‘It’s the place to be in good times or in bad.’ ”

  1. Where do I send a check for the current issue, and what will the cost be to have the issue sent to my home address?
