HEAT Series 3 Number 7

Strangers, sleepwalkers, chaos agents, vagrants, inventors and activists populate the first HEAT of 2023. Eda Gunaydin opens the issue with a satirical short story about misguided intentions. Gareth Morgan’s poems reveal glimpses of city life in Melbourne and on Staten Island. In two very short stories, Zhu Yue plays tricks with literary occidentalism. Pi.O. shares a sequence of poems that explore love, anarchy and the spirit of performance. Aleksandra Lun, who once worked in a casino, invokes the roulette wheel in an essay on literary transnationalism. Writing from Paris, Noémi Lefebvre imagines a conversation with Jacques Lacan over toast and coffee. And in closing, Andriy Lyubka sends a clear-eyed dispatch from Ukraine.
