Issue 20: Success & Failure

$15.00

Description

It’s hard to find anything—anything at all—about the topic of failure that doesn’t amount to some variation of “fail better,” or “fail your way to success.” But for most people “failing up” isn’t always an option, and success isn’t always good. In this issue of The Mockingbird, we explore the dark side of success and the bright side of failure. Not that we love failing—who does? Here you’ll find plenty of empathy for failures of all sorts: stalled business ventures, ineffective religious crusades, bad haircuts. In addition to interviews with Ted Lasso’s Nick Mohammed and the musician Bruce Cockburn, this issue also features new poetry by Nate Klug and Stephen Sexton; advice from Sarah Condon; and a sermon from David Zahl. And that’s just the beginning. Preview the Table of Contents for more.
