Family relationships involve both heart and art. From a social occasion half a world away in Poland—where strangers speaking another language can seem like kith and kin—to rural Randolph Country, North Carolina—where strained family ties can turn kin to strangers and the county line into a barrier impossible to cross—the works in Tampa Review 35 consider both the ties that bind and the points of fracture.
“It is hard to be lively and elegant at once, but Tampa Review brings it off.” -Fred Chappell
