Inside the hive Each September brings a new issue of the annual Santa Fe Literary Review, a mix of visual art, poetry, prose and fiction. The 2010 issue crackles with a wide mix of contributors, including 17-year-old Rita Feinstein, whose short story “Tuesday” follows a teenage protagonist who awkwardly and humorously seduces a classmate who also happens to be a glammed-up bisexual waiter-Lothario at The Atomic Grill. In the poem “The Executive Director Surveys His Domain,” Bill O’Neill, the former chief of the New Mexico Juvenile Parole Board pushes through an intellectually honest examination of his life’s work — “of botched childhoods held together by/the bong life, the gang life & the sheer/majesty of teenage fire.” Devon Miller-Duggan, a Pushcart-nominated poet, takes an elegiac look at the passing of the last veteran of the famous World War I Christmas truce, in which British and German troops observed an unprecedented Christmas Day cease-fire, “We mourn the world you lived through, where, briefly,/war gave way to incandescence.” On the visual-arts front, the cover painting by Lea Bradovich delightfully reimagines the a bee colony’s queen as a woman painted by Botticelli. On Thursday, Sept. 30, several of the anthology’s writers read their prose and poetry at 5:30 p.m. in the Jemez Room at Santa Fe Community College (6401 S. Richards Ave).
