Canadian writing is spotlighted in the second issue of Atlas, a new literary journal being published in New Delhi, India. In a letter accompanying a copy sent to Q&Q, B.C. contributor Peggy Herring points out that “literary links between Canada and India are many. There are a number of accomplished writers of South Asian birth who live in Canada…. However, it is not often that Indian editors and journals turn their gaze toward Canada.” Canadian contributions to the issue include fiction and poetry from David Bergen, Katherine Govier, Nicole Brossard, Di Brandt, Paulette Jiles, and a sketched self-portrait by Margaret Atwood.
The same issue also features an interview with Salman Rushdie.
