Brick is an international literary magazine based in Toronto, Canada. Published just twice a year, the magazine is a beautifully produced keepsake filled with essays, interviews, memoirs, travelogues, belles lettres, and casual, idiosyncratic ephemera that can only be described as “Bricky.” In each issue, the world’s best-loved writers have wide, lively, personal discussions about writing, reading, film, art, culture, science, sports, food—literally anything that strikes their fancy or haunts their imagination.
Brick is edited by Michael Redhill, Linda Spalding, Michael Helm, Rebecca Silver Slayter, and Laurie Graham.
Brick 93 celebrates Mavis Gallant with photos, excerpts from her fiction and criticism, and tributes by Michael Helm, Michael Ondaatje, and Francine Prose, among others. Our Summer 2014 issue also features poetry by Jan Zwicky and Sharon Olds; interviews with Aleksandar Hemon and Obi Nwakanma; and new essays from Damon Galgut, Myrna Kostash, and Grant Buday, to name a few. Zachary Lazar writes about a Passion play in Angola prison, with photographs by Deborah Luster; Richard Sanger says goodbye to Seamus Heaney; and Tara Quinn follows Leonard Woolf to Sri Lanka.
