Cracking the Earth: A 25th Anniversary

Anthology from CALYX

Edited by Beverly McFarland, et al.

The editors celebrate CALYX Journal’s silver anniversary with work that blazes a brilliant path across the literary world, work by well-known and up-and-coming CALYX discoveries. Cracking the Earth “grounds us in the things that matter,” Kathleen Alcalá writes in the introduction, and reminds us of “the reason for literature—to make us understand that we can crack the earth and change the world.”
