Andy Palacio by Christopher Cozier
Palacio 01 Body

Andy Palacio is a tough person to pin down. After all, he is the reputed “King of Punta Rock,” the driving dance beat from Belize that, believe it or not, can incorporate the fast tempo of Merengue, the swinging groove of Zouk, the thumping backbeat of Soca, and a range of other Afro-Caribbean and African forms.

The Secret Life of Insects by Bernardo Esquinca

Two things to mention: 1) I am going to speak with my wife, two years after the last time. 2) My wife is dead; she died two years ago, in odd circumstances.

Interrogating Samantha by Guillermo Fadanelli
