LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

he joys and limitations of mothering are just about all that propel the new novel from Jayne Anne Phillips, and after a while the endless maternal variations start to wear.

There are no tricks to Charles Baxter's prose, just good stories told in inventive, clear, language.

Pico Iyer's "Global Soul" is a thought-provoking collection of essays profiling a new kind of world citizen, who subscribes by choice or necessity to the view that "one country's not enough."

Also, new stories from Russell Banks, a novel in short stories from Elissa Schappell, and more.
