The latest issue of The Missouri Review: Solo is full of wonderful fiction.
In Peter Selgin's "Color of the Sea," the narrator travels through Greece with a woman he met on a ferry and examines the meaning of loneliness.
In Brigid Pasulka's "The Bride from the Village of Deaf-Mute," a match-maker from Russia gets a glimpse of true love in an unexpected way and sees his own marriage for what it is.
In Julia Glassman's "Tenses," a woman becomes worried after her husband will only speak to her in Japanese.
These are just three of the five fiction pieces. The issue is also full of wonderful essays, poetry, cartoons and an interview with Richard Wilbur.
