SUBTERRAIN #73, $7, 8 ½”x 11”, print, 80 pgs.

It’s always great to see a copy of this excellent Canadian lit mag in my review pile. The editors of subTerrain consistently choose seemingly simple themes and let contributors run wild. This issue focuses on secrets, with ruminations on the recent Ashley Madison hack, eating disorders, and organized crime at the fore. Like previous issues, this one’s a slow burn, best savored over several reading sessions to allow the prose’s different forms and tones to congeal. Recommended. –Michael T.
