Home: It isn’t just the landscape that you see outside your window. It’s also the people that walk with you, the sound of a particular voice, and the memories—both real and imagined—that you pull together. In a way, an essay is a kind of home—a place to grow and stretch, and a place to come into an understanding of some small corner of the world. So this month, we’re thrilled to bring you three essays that explore this theme of place and belonging, and how we’re shaped by the world and people around us even when we don’t realize it. 

In ON A Scotch Bard, Gone to the West Indies, Andrew Ladd talks about what happens when you don’t sound like where you’re supposed to be from. 

In Counting Trout, Nadine Sander-Green walks through the forests and mountains of her childhood, and examines how these places were both illuminated and shadowed by the specter of illness. 

And in The Trouble with Fairy Tales, Ashley Varela takes us, hand-in-hand, through the world of Disney—the movies, the magic, and the mother-daughter tensions that surprised her beneath those childhood memories of theme parks and love. 

These essays are brave and sad and reaching in the best kind of way, and we heart them very much. Hope you do, too.

The super talented and super awesome David Connerley Nahm joined us for a 10-question Q+A that starts with us asking him about his debut novel ANCIENT OCEANS OF CENTRAL KENTUCKY (Two Dollar Radio) and ends with him telling us an apparently true (and very recent) ghost story. Along the way we also chatted about music, short stories and literary influences. Check it out.

Listen to Xe Sands’ brilliant read of Emily Walker’s fearless and heartbreaking essay THE GREY GOOSE AND WILD TURKEY YEARS. It tells the story of Emily’s battle with depression and of time spent with her grandfather following his own diagnosis with dementia. From Xe: “Emily Walker's work always grabs hold and shakes me… This gorgeous and heartbreaking essay pulls no punches. It simply tells the tale as she lived it.”

Eliza Robertson, author of the critically-acclaimed short story collection, WALLFLOWERS, stopped by to answer some rather challenging questions we had for her. They mostly had to do with winning awards, typing with insect poo, and if she’d play softball with Margaret Atwood. 

it’s a literary Would You Rather… ?

One of our most recent essayists joins us for a Q+A… of sorts. It’s actually a top ten list (and you know how much we love lists) about all things Edinburgh. So why Edinburgh? In part, because it’s Andrew’s home town. In part because home is what Andrew’s essay is about. And in part because his debut novel, WHAT ENDS, has a few moments set in Edinburgh. But honestly, do you really need a reason? It’s Edinburgh, in list form.
