P.Q. Post


We hope you’ll enjoy our new Pittsburgh Quarterly newsletter. We’re pleased to let you know that we’ve dramatically redesigned our website——and we’re now publishing web-exclusive stories every week. We have a very strong lineup, with the same great journalism that’s made Pittsburgh Quarterly the region’s best magazine 10 years in a row.

One story is about the life and times of Joe Regoli, a homeless man I’ve known since 1988. I knew that one day I would write the story of our unorthodox friendship. And with my learning of Joe’s death last Thursday, that day has come. 

Also, Stuart Sheppard reviews Quantum Theatre’s “The River”—a surrealistic show that opened over the weekend. And I think you’ll be fascinated, as I was, by Greg Curtis’s “Contemporary Colonialism.” Below is a sampling of the terrific writers and artists you’ll find on the site. Take a look around; we hope you like what you see. And we hope you find these stories to be worth your time.
