Fall 2000

The Fall 2000 issue of Ploughshares, guest-edited by Gish Jen. Ploughshares, a journal of new writing, is guest-edited serially by prominent writers who explore different personal visions, aesthetics, and literary circles.

Guest-edited by Gish Jen, author of Mona in the Promised Land and Typical American, among other acclaimed books, the Fall 2000 issue of Ploughshares contains prose by authors including Ann Beattie, Peter Ho Davies, and Pamela Painter. In her Introduction to the issue, Jen says that the pieces within "retain a secreted quality, a wild intimacy. They are unpredictable. Not so much incorrect as acorrect, they achieve a balance between form and utterance that I find beautiful."
