The US Represented Weekly Update

eagleHello USR members and guests,

We’ve had a great week here at US Represented, and we hope you have, too. In Robert Fagles translation of The Odyssey, Book 11, Tiresias predicts Odysseus’s fate. Eric Stephenson’sHope You’re Happy, Too” describes an eventful morning that turns out differently than one might expect. Robert Frost’s “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening” describes a solitary moment in “darkest evening of the year.” Cheri Arfsten’s memoir “Locked in a Frame” discusses the Painted Desert, the Navajo Nation, and perceptions that remain the same yet change through time’s passing. In “Krokodil: The Price to Pay for Getting High,” Amber Sagapolu describes what might be the most damaging street drug ever, and one that’s gaining popularity worldwide. In his article “James Blake: Progress in Retrograde,” Sam Schoenecker underscores the gifts of a serious young musical talent. In this week’s installment of Emily Badovinac’s novel Deep Red, readers discover the origins of “Chapter One’s” torture scenario. “Chapter Two: Blood Panic” takes us back four years earlier, where Marlo is forced to confront her true self. Both of them.

Also, we’re finally beginning to post various works to our redesigned Visual Arts section. For instance, feel free to review our Photography section. We like the looks of the upgrade, and we’ll be running a contest soon. We’ll let you know when we do.

Best!
