Hinterland Issue 7 - Spring 2021
This Spring issue of Hinterland celebrates the limitless reach of life writing. Between them, our writers explore adoption, suicide, sexual assault, the AIDS crisis, conscription, grandparents, trauma, and the enduring influence of Elizabeth Bishop. Headlining this issue we celebrate a work seminal to the genre of life writing: Lorna Sage’s Bad Blood, with a collection of exclusive-to-Hinterland pieces by Christopher Bigsby, Victor Sage and Sharon Tolaini-Sage, with a foreword by Kathryn Hughes, that illuminate and respond to the legacy of Sage’s memoir, now entering its third decade of continuous publication.
Also featuring writing by Rob Atkinson, Bella Braxton, Freya Dean, Julie FitzGerald, Karin Hedetniemi, Stella Maria Murphy, Katrina Naomi, Ivan Pope, Kim Rooney, Giles Scott, Helen Tookey and Emilio Williams.
