ZYZZVA East Coast Celebration

"The magazine isn't just for us on Pacific Standard Time—this gold is for everyone!"—Edan Lepucki, The Millions

"One of the country's finest literary journals"—Ron Charles, The Washington Post

"Almost an embarrassing embarras de richesse."—The Times Literary Supplement

San Francisco's premier literary magazine returns to McNally Jackson with a brand new issue—offering new work from Dagoberto Gilb, Austin Smith, Olivia Clare, Dominica Phetteplace, Kristopher Jansma, Lauren Alwan, Paul Madonna, Alan Cheuse and many more—and a reading featuring some of its East Coast contributors. Emceed by ZYZZYVA Managing Editor Oscar Villalon.

April Ayers Lawson's work has appeared in Crazyhorse, The Paris Review, Vice, and the Oxford American. Her story “Virgin” won the Plimpton Prize in 2011. Her collection of stories is forthcoming from Farrar, Straus, & Giroux.

Kristopher Jansma's first novel, "The Unchangeable Spots of Leopards" (Viking), won the 2014 Sherwood Anderson Fiction Award. His new novel is "Why We Came to the City" (Penguin).

Sonya Cheuse is director of publicity for Ecco Books. She will be reading a story by Alan Cheuse, "The Burden," to be published in ZYZZYVA's upcoming Spring issue.

Henri Lipton recently moved from the Bay Area to New York. His story in ZYZZYVA's Winter issue, "After Me, the Flood," marks his first time in print.
