Tales of life and death echo through the pages of Berlin Quarterly
Mixing poetry, short stories, photo essays and reportage, Berlin Quarterly does a brilliant job of allowing themes to quietly coalesce on its pages. This time its stories range from the USA and Haiti to Italy and Ireland, and the slow tension between life and death emerges before the reader.
It’s beautifully poised and fantastically eclectic stuff. When we spoke for the Stack podcast, editor James Guerin talked about his desire to create something that would last long after he’s gone, and Berlin Quarterly somehow manages to feel timeless whilst also giving a sense of the world as we find it today.
Of course these videos can only offer a glimpse of the magazine itself, so if this all looks like something you want in your life, head over to the Stack shop and buy your copy. But be warned – you’ll soon be hunting for back issues to complete your collection of this excellent journal.
