About the book:

This latest issue of "Blue Mesa Review, the literary annual founded by Rudolfo Anaya, explores issues of the new millenium through the poetry and fiction of more than sixty contributors, including Virgil Suarez, David Axelrod, Brian Swann, Paul Scott Malone, and Harvena Richter. An anthology of the best, most current writers reflecting on the passing millenium, and its effects on the next... Plus two provocative photo essays: The first, Ancient Heart, an excerpt from a forthcoming book of photography by Amy Zuckerman, peers into the dream-like last days of an AIDS victim, shrouded in gauze, accompanied by his own soul-baring journal entries. "These journal entries are not captions. They should be considered anecdotal evidence of a process nearing completion--an artist's examination of his experience, while working to complete his masterpiece--what most of us would call our lives." In "Creating Destruction, nationally renowned photographer Miguel Gandert presents a tourist's-eye view of the fiftieth anniversary of the Trinity Site, where the world's first atomic device was detonated--at once the pinnacle of human achievement and the opportunity for annhilation of the Earth's entire population. Captured by the sardonic wit of Gandert's photographs, visitors "slowly pass by, observing plaques depicting the history of the Bomb, placed on a fence, as if they were stations of the cross."
