New Absinthe

I'm digging the new issue of Absinthe: New European Writing, the brain child of Dwayne Hayes. Not only is it slaking my thirst for contemporary European literature in translation, but also for heretical icons. Ever since traveling to Russia, I have been entranced by icons, those windows into the other world. There is an image of the Trinity that, according to one of my students who is studying for the priesthood, is heretical for its depiction of God the Father. Wait until you see this thing. It'll make your head spin. Go to their website for more information.
