You're accessing this slice of literary goodness for free because we believe anyone and everyone should be able to access the best in fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and art. And because we don't ask our readers to pay for Guernica, we do—for web hosting, server costs, and the other incidentals necessary to keep Guernica up and running, and, most importantly, open and available to as many people as possible, around the world.
If like us you believe in a widely accessible Guernica, consider supporting the magazine with a tax deductible donation or by subscribing. We'll only be asking for two weeks, three times a year—asking for support from readers like you on your own terms: our all-volunteer staff gives to Guernica out of love, and we extend that friendship to you. If you love Guernica, click to help make sure an ever-growing community can continue to read, react, and participate. Each month, more than 100,000 unique readers visit guernicamag.com—even a small amount, a couple of dollars, from just half of those visitors would sustain us for many, many moons.
Our infinite thanks,
The Guernica Team

I recommend Asa because there are some things that are too stunning not to be shared. The self-titled debut album comes from a young Paris-born Nigerian woman. Asa (pronounced Ah-shah) is not only a socially conscious and challenging album; it’s beautiful to listen to. Her smoky-smooth voice mixes in with the simple acoustic accompaniment so that her messages, sung in English, Pidgin English and Yoruba, become honey-sweet.
