Jasmine Chatfield reviews The Chilean Flag The interchange of the Flag between object and woman conjures unusual and arresting images: ‘stabbed by matadors’ flags she bleeds in a plastic bag’, a line that sounds almost out of a nursery rhyme, its jauntiness a mockery that serves to underscore the degradation of the country.

Over at Full Stop, an insightful review of The Dirty Text, by Soleida Ríos. With reality itself at stake, Ríos’ materialization of dreams in literature is not mere narcissistic auto-analysis. Opposed to petrified, insomniac ideologies that prove increasingly inadequate to the task of averting societal implosion, dreams liquify the strictures of consciousness to yield the raw […]
