Twenty-one writers reflect on the concept of home and its polyvalent meanings.
"As my obsession with narratives bloomed & I shifted into my role as managing editor at New Rivers, I realize that I built another family here—a new home in the narratives & works of my writing friends & family—in their words, in their minds, in their lives. That’s what these pages amount to: an assemblage, a gallery, a collage of a few members of my writerly found family. A tribute to how they grapple with their own understanding of home—juxtapositions palimpsestic, vibrant, & polyvalent. Beautiful & resonant in the ways they are themselves. Reading their homes has helped me understand my knowing of the word too. Hopefully you, dear reader can find a home here too, or find some new understanding within these pages." —Nayt Rundquist, editor
