Analysis: The content is varied—prose composed almost entirely of dialogue, or as a “test,” or prose poems, or a nonfiction piece on striptease—and strong literary fare. It feels, to me, like the magazine is trying to be very hip and current, and in many ways it is successful. The writing is fresh, and Mid-American Review’s dedication to international works in translation sets it apart from many other journals.
