    Why Alexander Chee’s Novel Edinburgh (2001) Made Me Glad to Cry

     

              

     
     

    Publisher’s Note: January 2019
     

    While it is extremely rare that content is removed once an issue goes public, at the request of the author, the publisher approved removal of “Why Alexander Chee’s Novel Edinburgh Made Me Glad to Cry.” Since the essayist is a contributing guest editor and long-time supporter of aaduna, this editorial exemption has been made without prejudice towards the writer.
     

    We look forward to another contribution from her in a future issue.
