The August issue of Arkansas Review also has been published, and the print publication of this issue is now available.

The issue (volume 51, number 2) includes a memoir by Floyd Collins exploring the life and writings of Delta poet Frank Stanford. The creative works featured in this issue take on a multitude of forms, from poetry by Dallas Crow, Brent House and karla k. morton, to fiction by Perrin Drumm, Andrew C. Miller and River Adams, as well as an essay by Cary Holladay.

This newest edition of Arkansas Review also contains an interview by Maureen Richmond with Little Rock native Webb Hubbell, discussing Delta themes in his legal-thriller fiction, and a review essay by Guy Lancaster delving into three works concerning the impact of racial violence on national identity.
