Still at the very center of local culture, New Zealand’s liveliest and most important literary magazine returns in 2015 with Landfall 229, showcasing the best of the country’s contemporary writing across a breadth of styles and themes. There’s fiction from Katy Soljak, Sandra Arnold, and Sean Monaghan; Emma Neale humorously agonizes about how to begin a short story; Owen Marshall describes a not-so-perfect book launch; Nick Ascroft offers darting, somersaulting word-play in a British multicultural supermarket; and Louise Wallace visits Arizona. There’s much more of course, including Landfall’s trademark mix of authoritative and telling reviews by some of New Zealand’s most discerning critical voices, as well as a 16-page art portfolio. In short, this polished new issue proves Landfall a vital promontory in the national cultural landscape: a richly illustrated liminal space for subliminal writing.
