LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

ames Nachtwey is America's foremost war photographer, and on the publication of a new collection of his work, the Boston Phoenix talks with him about his chosen career, the pitfalls, the dangers, the excitement, and the meaning of visual reportage.

Anthony Lloyd's gruesome and gritty account of war in Bosnia has been hailed as a classic, but our reviewer finds the author's motivation suspect and his perspective failed.

You don't have to be crazy or even an artist to move to Mexico. Boomers are arriving in droves, buying up old houses, starting businesses. Mexico is not just for hippies anymore. Or maybe the hippies have just changed.

Plus, a novel only a poet could write, the art and science of keeping a home, and more.
