This month we showcase writing from Brazil. With the country's current upheaval in the international spotlight, the writers here provide insight into this complex nation's culture. Cristhiano Aguiar, Carol Bensimon, Horácio Costa, Orides Fontela, Angélica Freitas, Armando Freitas Filho, Rodrigo de Souza Leão, Vinicius Jatobá, Antônio Moura, Laurenço Mutarelli, and Antônio Prata contribute fiction, poetry, and nonfiction.

In our special section, we present poetry from the Faroe Islands by Sissal Kampmann, Tóroddur Poulsen, and Vónbjørt Vang.
