Check out CQR editor Syed Afzal Haider’s short story, ‘Colors Of A Day,’ in Taylor Trust Magazine.
CQR editors had a great time at the City of Chicago sponsored publishing event ‘What’s New & What’s Next in Chicago Publishing’ last night. Four writers from the 2nd Story ensemble read – the theme was love in all its various guises – and music was provided by the always fantastic Seeking Wonderland. We also enjoyed a conversation with Jill Pollack, director of StoryStudiochicago, before the reading.
CQR editor Dan Portincaso has had a story titled ‘7 pm: Room 71 – Melissa’ published in Pank Magazine.

The Resurrection of the Body: Pier Paolo Pasolini from Saint Paul to Sade, by Armando Maggi, (University of Chicago Press, 2009) is an extremely rigorous study of Pasolini’s final works: the screenplay Saint Paul, the scenario for Porn-Theo-Colossal, the immense and unfinished novel Petrolio, and his notorious final film, Salò or the 120 Days of Sodom, an adaptation of the writings of the Marquis de Sade.
