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 Ondaatje, Michael Redhill, Linda Spalding, Michael Helm, Rebecca Silver Slayter, and Esta Spalding.
In Brick 91, forty-four contributors—John Irving, Sheila Heti, Francine Prose, Colum McCann, Ayana Mathis, and Lawrence Hill, to name a few—write about their favourite endings. The Summer 2013 issue also offers in-depth reviews by Di Brandt and Tom Mayer, interviews with Tsitsi Dangarembga, Julian Barnes, and Mario Vargas Llosa, essays by Linda Spalding, Kathryn Kuitenbrouwer, and Kilby Smith-McGregor, poetry by Ben Lerner, John Freeman, and Jim Harrison, and more.
