From Our Editors

"Inside every greeting there is also a farewell," says the narrator in Night Train to Nykøbing. Never before has that simple observation been associated with such profound loss as she boards a train, leaving her lover behind on the platform.

Kristjana Gunnars has written a deeply felt narrative that traces not only a physical journey, but a soulful one as well.
