Ishi, nege =
Okay, tomorrow

In This Issue
July has been a long time coming, or as we use to say in Ethiopia, “Ishi, nege,” but here is the issue, and it is jammed with wonderful pieces of writing and news, all of it good. Check out the six book reviews, the list of 21 new books, and two essays by RPCV writers who contributed to our “A Writer Writes” column. They are The Fireflies of Kalai by Christine Taylor (Namibia 1999-2000) and “Scouts” by Katherine Jamieson (Guyana 1996-98). PLUS the two scholarship winning essays.
     We also interviewed the charming and very successful novelist, Lucia St. Clair Robson (Venezuela 1964–66), who has made a career out of writing historical novels. Richard Lipez (Ethiopia 1962-64) writes about what it is like to see his book made into a TV movie. It will be shown nationally this fall on HereTV.
     For our on-going series by RPCVs who were both in the military (Vietnam mostly) and the Peace Corps, we publish David Gurr’s (Ethiopia 1962-64) essay: Footprints in the Sand: My Time in Vietnam. And don’t forget to check out Literary Type. We have great news about new books and stories appearing on-line, and in hardback.
     And for those old enough to remember, we have The Zinzin Road by Fletcher Knebel (PC/Evaluation 1964), this month’s selection in the Book Locker.
     Sorry we are late for July, but you’ll see when you read the issue, it was worth the wait.
