“Cyclopean Language Consists of Consonants” in New Gobshite Quarterly - November 17, 2014

The only literary journal you’ll likely find that prints postage stamps alongside an author’s country of origin, Gobshite Quarterly is among Portland’s collection of fine small press journals. We’re happy to have one of our Amelin translations, “Cyclopean Language Consists of Consonants,” included in their current double issue (Summer/Fall 2014). Fellow Russian translator Alex Cigale is also represented, as is an “exquisite corpse” poem written, in part, by my old Michigan MFA colleague, Britta Ameel. My thanks to R.V. Branham, who’ll happily sell you a a copy of the new Gobshite here.
