Description

The Summer 2015 issue of Ploughshares, guest-edited by Lauren Groff. Ploughshares, a journal of new writing, is guest-edited serially by prominent writers who explore different and personal visions, aesthetics, and literary circles.

Acclaimed novelist and short-story writer Lauren Groff (The Monsters of Templeton, Delicate Edible Birds) guest-edits this all-fiction issue. As Groff writes in her introduction, "I am searching for work that is written with blood or bile or choler, not necessarily sweat alone." Featuring narratives that range from a woman falling in love with a dead man ("In the Flesh, We Shone" by Alex Shakar) to the effect a traveling circus has on an entire town ("The Miracle Years of Little Fork" by Rebecca Makkai), these stories explore humanity through the bizarre and unexpected. This issue includes new work from Lydia Davis, Daniel Peña, Helen Oyeyemi, Fiona Maazel, and more.

The Summer 2015 issue also features Thomas Pruiksma's Plan B essay about his first love of magic, a look at the prolific author Peter De Vries, and an interview with Nick Arvin, our Alice Hoffman Prize Winner.

Lauren Groff is the author of four books: The Monsters of Templeton, shortlisted for the Orange Prize for New Writers and a New York Times Bestseller, Delicate Edible Birds: And Other Stories, Arcadia, shortlisted for the L.A. Times Prize for Fiction and a New York Times Bestseller and Notable Book of 2012, and Fates and Furies, to be published in September 2015. Her short fiction has won Pushcart and O. Henry prizes and has appeared in journals including the New Yorker, the Atlantic Monthly, Ploughshares, One Story, McSweeney's and Ecotone, three editions of the Best American Short Stories anthology, and 100 Years of the Best American Short Stories, to be published this fall. She lives in Gainesville, Florida with her family.
