A Glimpse of Flesh

A preview of our Fall 2016 issue.

By Lapham’s Quarterly

Thursday, September 15, 2016

“Flesh,” the Fall 2016 issue of Lapham’s Quarterly, hits newsstands and the web on Tuesday, September 20, and it’s a meaty one (though not literally): adventures in virtual sex, Captain James Cook encountering some not-so-friendly cannibals, Helen Keller inventing a new language, and England’s first midwife offering childbirthing advice from the seventeenth century. Original essays cover the sex habits of a nineteenth-century experimental community and the regimented libertinism of the Marquis de Sade.

While you’ll have to wait a few more days to see (and touch) “Flesh,” we can offer a sneak peek in the form of “The Rise and Fall of Flesh,” one of the issue’s original Charts & Graphs.
