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.
In Brick 98, Elena Ferrante corresponds with Sheila Heti, Forrest Gander translates Pablo Neruda, Paul Seesequasis reclaims stories from Everett Baker’s photographs; and Kirsty Gunn goes bush. We’ve got interviews with novelist Edna O'Brien and poet Tim Lilburn; fiction from Nicholas Ruddock; essays by Sunila Galappatti, Jan Zwicky, Javier Montes, and Aaron Gilbreath; reviews by Karen Solie, Lisa Moore, and Tara Quinn; and memoir by Marina Endicott. The issue also features a special section wherein Pasha Malla, Lynn Crosbie, Adam Sol, Donna Morrissey, and more play with the plot of great literary works.
