“Carl” by Ane Nydal: A correspondent unspools why an American who has left his life behind is whiling his days in a Jerusalem hotel.

“The Dusk Market” by ‘Pemi Aguda: “You don’t see the dusk market if you are not invited to the dusk market, but there are slippery moments, slits, frissons. It is when this happens that the children see hopping heads or winking herons …”

“The Past Self That Puzzles, the Present Self That Unravels” by Dean Rader: The 1999 slayings of an Australian missionary and two of his young children leave haunting and personal questions of what—or whom—precipitated their killings.

“The Secret Garden” by Pilar Quintana: “Rather than pour a glass of water, she grabs the pint of cane liquor. Unscrews the cap. Before taking a drink, Rosa realizes she didn’t need it in the Secret Garden. … This astounds her.”
