Berlin Quarterly Issue 8 is out now. This issue features three acclaimed poets. Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill constructs mythical anthropology about merfolk who have come to live on land, as translated from the Irish by poet Paul Muldoon; Safiya Sinclair viscerally interrogates the violent history of her native Jamaica; and John Burnside revisits the theme of mourning in both verse and conversation with Daniel Lipara. Gabriel Ventura guest curates a pair of Catalan short stories by Antònia Vicens and Lucia Pietrelli, which engage with femininity and desire in symbolic and lyrical prose.

In Solastagia, artist Marina Vitaglione personifies Venice, narrating the city’s sinking into the sea in text as well as images, whose film have been degraded by exposure to seawater. Alison Leslie Gold, a preeminent Holocaust writer, shares a personal letter reflecting on a lost friend.

In Berlin Quarterly’s signature long form reportage, R. Teresa O’Connell returns to her native Calabria to interview the organizers of Liberi di Scegliere, a program that relocates children from Mafia families in an attempt to redirect their adulthoods. O’Connell situates the program in the context of Mafia Studies, an emerging academic field in psychology.
