West Marin Review--one of the most democratic and wide-ranging publications in the country (selections are chosen blind by committees of writers, poets, and artists)--is a collaborative effort of the local, independent Point Reyes Books and friends and neighbors from the rural West Marin, California community. Known for its diverse company of contributors, the award-winning Review features art and poetry from residents of West Marin, and of villages--and cities--across the country. There are professional writers and artists here, along with novices publishing for the first time. The art and poetry of schoolchildren complements history and nature writing, as well as poetry, art, music, essays, and stories from funny to profound, all in a full-color book awarded for excellence of design. Stars in this issue of the Review include artist Russell Chatham, poets Robert Hass and Jane Hirschfield, journalist Mark Dowie, and novelist Susan Trott.
