YA5 is a new arts journal from Portland, Oregon. One of its founders and editors is David Knowles, a Vassar crony and artist and book designer. YA5’s first issue was released in April, “The Art Issue.” “The Music Issue” has just been released. There will be five issues a year, the others being Food, Design, and Film. I had a piece in issue 1 on Iraqi artists in Syria, a reflection on my time in Damascus in 2009, where the best times were long evenings in the apartment of a Baghdad artist and his friends.
