Authors that have been featured in past issues of the journal include Raymond Carver, Jorge Luis Borges, Philip Gourevitch, Lydia Davis, Stephen Jay Gould, Noam Chomsky, Phillip Lopate, Ha Jin, Jonathan Lethem, Italo Calvino, John D’Agata, Jack Pierson, Sam Lipsyte, Heidi Julavits, Jonathan Safran Foer, Wayne Koestenbaum, Deb Olin Unferth, Timothy Liu, and Etgar Keret.
