Letter from the Editors, Summer 2017, Issue 14
Summer is here at last – and with it, a new issue of Two Cities Review!
For many of us, summer is a time of rest, relaxation and reflection. The days are long (here in the Northern Hemisphere) and the sun is high in the sky. Everything seems more bright and full of promise. We spend time with loved ones, read that book that’s been sitting on the shelf for months and find time to work on that novel.
This issue is full of the promise and beauty of summer. Our writers are asking whimsical questions about what would happen if time went backwards or if art was permanently banned, but they are also traveling around the globe and through their own inner lives.
Our writers find love on a trip to Tokyo, but also companionship in a centipede scuttling across a kitchen floor. There’s so much to relish in these hot, hazy, romantic days for our writers. In this issue’s stories, essays, and poems, homesickness and longing for loved ones now gone make for a poignant, and potent, mix. We hope you enjoy these as much as we did.
