"What becomes clear is that forgiveness and reconciliation are of far less interest to the victims than they are to perpetrators."—Susan Linfield describes how Rwanda's justice system coped in the wake of genocide. http://www.guernicamag.com/features/linfield_7_1_10/
Applying the ideas of Holocaust survivor Jean Améry to present day Rwanda, our author argues that reconciliation after genocide is just another form of torture.

"The affair really comes from an egalitarian culture where there is a disconnect between sexuality and emotionality but also between emotionality and institutionality. You can have sex without having emotions and have emotions without the institutions." Eva Illouz, interviewed by Jesse Tangen-Mills. http://www.guernicamag.com/interviews/illouz_6_1_10/
The rising intellectual star on how commodities create feelings, the modern lingua franca of therapy-speak, and Israel’s emotional style.

"I’ve been covering this story for over twenty years—I am absolutely intent on watching this movie until it’s over. I think it’s in its last stages. I’m not going to walk out now. It’s a disgusting thing to watch, but at this point I’m a professional watcher of it. It gets a little complicated being away, but in other ways it makes you more clear-eyed. I see stories that I didn’t see from the inside." Masha Gessen, interviewed by Meara Sharma, on anti-queer policy in Russia. http://www.guernicamag.com/interviews/gay-propaganda-and-russias-shrinking-public-space/
The investigative journalist on Putin, anti-queer campaigns, and the “personal catastrophe” of exile.

"We were together for almost two years before he was violent with me. First he pushed me against a wall. It was two more years before he hit me, and another year after that before he hit me again. It happened so slowly, then so fast."—from Kelly Sundberg's "It Will Look Like a Sunset"

“You made me hit you in the face,” he said mournfully. “Now everyone is going to know.”

"The trip was a mess, a total mess–my wacky doctor girlfriend at the graduation party with my sister and her meth-head girlfriend, my divorced parents hanging out like old buddies. I ended up in a gay honkytonk-slash-goth bar making out with a cowboy’s girlfriend." Former Marine and author of JARHEAD Anthony Swofford on his second memoir's origin story. http://www.guernicamag.com/interviews/writing-about-what-haunts-us/

"What started then was a slow dance with confession, a dance we never finished. Valerie told me that she went to Ed’s apartment every now and then to smoke pot, that he was always up for sharing his drugs."—James Harms unveils his wife's adultery in "The Cuckold".

The top of her head is the first thing to come into view, then her face, her face. Her face had a look that I understood before I fully realized I was understanding it.

"At home, it destroyed him to find pieces of egg yolk on newly washed silver spoons. She felt suffocated by his cleanliness. And he felt sullied by her careless dishwashing. It was an unlikely match. But they did love each other deeply." http://www.guernicamag.com/fiction/the-red-tricycle/
He liked how her odd mouth conjured surprise like a jack in the box. She liked how he used his bathtub as a closet.

"I called the top funeral home in the country. Naturally, I covered all the expenses. It was a fabulous morning." Fiction by Javier Mosquera, translated by David Unger, in our Free Expression special issue. http://www.guernicamag.com/fiction/figuraciones/
I needed to know everything about your boyfriend Marcos. I needed to know what he did, where he ate, who washed his clothes, on which side of the bed he slept.

The New York Times's Op-Talk interviewed Daily Editor Rachel Riederer about her essay on the rise of the adjunct in American universities in our recent Class In America issue: “Universities are under increased pressure to provide amenities along with a college education. I would love if students and parents, when visiting a campus and asking representatives what’s available, when asking about the gymnasium and dorm rooms, would be informed enough to ask what kind of teachers would be teaching different classes.”

http://op-talk.blogs.nytimes.com/2014/06/26/paying-for-quality-education/?_php=true&_type=blogs&_php=true&_type=blogs&_r=1&
Universities continue to rely on adjunct professors to teach. But students, ANNA ALTMAN writes, are wondering whether the trend will diminish the value, and return on investment, of their college degrees.
