The Suburban Review #24—UGLY




The Suburban Review #24: UGLY is ripe with fresh poetry, fiction, art, comics, and prose. Wade through the icky, the uncomfortable, the dazed and dazzling, as our contributors inspect the ugliness in ourselves and our worlds.

Carmen Hau challenges the familiar human form, Jessie Berry-Porter confronts the difficulties of mind and body, and Carly Stone excavates the messy heart. Gurmeet Kaur puts language and identity under the microscope while Caitlin Doyle-Markwick explores a creeping corruption. Gavin Yuan Gao traces the vicious experience of otherness, Erica Lange plays with gorgeous grotesques, and Daniel Swain serves some astringent truths.
