Issue 93, Summer 2016
The Oxford American’s 93rd issue features a special section, Southern Journeys: Travels through Space and Time.
From the introduction: “If ‘travel writing’ is a discrete genre, it is also an instruction to go someplace, engage, and report back: Travel, writing.”
Elsewhere in the issue, Lauren Groff finds beauty in the once-lost portraits of a Miami Beach photographer; Elyssa East wrestles with the painful legacy of her Harlan County, Kentucky, mining family; and John T. Edge shares his celebrated foodways column, “Local Fare,” with Nigerian-born restaurateur Tunde Wey, as they confront the provocative topic, “Who Owns Southern Food?”
