Notes on Zest

September 23, 2021 by The Citron Review

Happy fall, and welcome back to Zest, the book review section of our journal. Zest is also for interviews and anything else that Citron finds interesting that is related to writing and/or promotes writing. We are excited to drop three features for the fall issue. 

First, my review of poet Clara Burghelea’s Praise the Unburied, a book of poems that is coming out with Chaffinch Press on October 2. 

Second, an interview with Nick Olson—and review of his new book—courtesy of our Editor-in-Chief Angela Brommel. Olson’s book The Brother We Share came out through Alien Buddha Press in September. 

Finally, an interview with Jennifer Fliss by our Creative Nonfiction Editor Ronit Plank. Fliss’s book, The Predatory Animal Ball, arrives in December via Okay Donkey Press. 

We hope that you’ll consider Zest an integral part of reading our issues, along with selections from your favorite genres. After all, what is citrus without zest (or a rind, for that matter)? 

In the weeks and months ahead, expect more features and hybrid enjoyment. Enjoy!
