Take a trip across Israel with a deceased man as he tries to find an unoccupied place to rest, visit a ruined hotel in a washed-up resort in Puerto Rico, and become immersed in the lives of two very different families living in a marginalized ethnic community in Kansas City.
These and other stories can be found in a new volume of Ploughshares Solos Omnibus Volume 3. After individually publishing each of the Ploughshares Solos in a digital format, the stories are now available in this new print anthology, featuring all nine Solos.
Ploughshares Editor-in-Chief Ladette Randolph, who edited the anthology, said, “These stories don’t provide easy answers. To the contrary, they ask us to think more deeply about our assumptions, and to look critically at the narratives we take for granted and often fail to question.”
The authors in the collection include Catherine Browder, John Philip Drury, Anne Elliott, Kevin A. González, Robert Howard, Suzanne Matson, Clare Needham, Alix Ohlin, and Tova Reich.
Omnibus Volume 3 can be purchased for $19.95. The digital version is available for $9.99. This omnibus edition is also included in regular subscriptions to Ploughshares literary magazine.
Ploughshares, an award-winning literary magazine based at Emerson College, is published three times a year with two issues guest-edited by a prominent author.
