“A beautiful annual that remains staunchly avant-garde in its commitment to work that is oblique, enigmatic and impossible to ignore. . .stories that leave a flashbulb’s glow behind the eyes even as they resist sense.” — The New York Times
“Shimmers with courage, strangeness and unknown voices.” — Time Out New York
“A compendium of unlikely pleasures: short prose and illustrations that challenge us to think about meaning and narrative. The brainchild of fiction writer Diane Williams, who edits it, Noon has been around since 2000, publishing a single issue annually; it is elegantly designed and curated, a journal that wears its intentions on its sleeve.” — The Los Angeles Times
“NOON sets itself apart from the crowded field of literary journals with the quality of its submissions, its clean, easy-to-read design, and eye-catching cover. … The editors of NOON adeptly select innovative, original, and highly readable work.” — Library Journal
“The best stories in NOON are, indeed, stunning, in the sense that they leave one conscious of powerful meanings not yet fully absorbed.” — Times Literary Supplement
With these bona fides, why is NOON impossible to find in a city with so many great independent bookstores? And what can I do to fix this?
As with my agreement with Apartamento, I brought NOON in directly from the publication itself. No middlemen. No nonsense. Max money for the mag and guaranteed copies for Volver!
Available now: Issues 20 and 21. Price is $25 per.
