Asymptote’s summer issue is out. The nonfiction section includes texts by Fausto Alzati Fernández, Rasha Khayat, and Silviano Santiago.
After six years at the nonfiction editor of Asymptote, this was my last issue, as I step down to focus on my own writing. It was a great pleasure, and a wonderful education in literature, to work with Asymptote for all these years.
I was able to edit and publish some of my favourite writers, including Dominique Eddé, Abdourahman A. Waberi, Abdelfattah Kilito, Abdellah Taïa, Antonin Artaud, Gonçalo M. Tavares, Miljenko Jergović, and Semezdin Mehmedinović, amongst so many others.
Learning about writing from all over the globe, and then somehow managing the challenge of editing it all, made working with Asymptote a true education in literature.
