I’ve been impatiently waiting for the inaugural issue of Résonance, and it’s finally here. Résonance is a new literary e-journal dedicated to writing by and about the French-heritage communities of the United States, and I’m so pleased to have two pieces included in its first issue: a review of Northland, a travel book by Porter Fox, and an excerpt from my new play, Les filles de quoi? , in which a Franco-American writer attempts to contend with the ghost of Jack Kerouac.
There is so much exciting work here: poetry by Denise Duhamel, Ellen L. LaFleche, and Beverly Matherne; fiction by Norman Beaupré; and essays, reviews, and interviews that ask fascinating questions about heritage, history, and the future. There are so many interesting directions for this new publication to take. I can’t wait to see what happens next.
