In an era where fact and fiction are bedfellows, books are a necessity. It seems fitting, then, to dedicate this issue of TANK to the latest publications that, in one way or another, seek to shake up the status quo.

Our selection committee joins us from three corners of the globe: Barbara Epler, the president of New Directions in New York, USA; Karthika V.K, the publisher of the Context imprint of Westland Books in Chennai, India; and Remi Faucheux, the co-publisher of RVB Books, an independent fine-art publisher in Paris, France. Between them, they offer their harvest from the latest crop of fiction, non-fiction and art books.

Our fashion pages “A Note on the Author” provide a suitably prim and decadent dress code for our annual literary soirée. Alternatively, you can find inspiration in Caroline Issa’s pre-Fall 2018 selection.

We rejoice at the return of Prada’s black nylon bags, a fashion staple of the 1990s, now reinvented by the likes of architect Rem Koolhaas, while in “Money Bags” photographer Anthony Seklaoui shows us some alternative options to Philip Hammond’s red leather Budget Box.

Plus, we enjoy the latest frames from Chanel Eyewear, just in time for the solstice sun.

Elsewhere in the issue, Ben Okri writes an empathetic portrait of Ben Enwonwu’s 1974 painting “Tutu”, which sold for £1.2 million last February. Author and poet Fatima Bhutto explains why her forthcoming may be the antidote to #whitesplaining. Plus there are interviews with Olga Tokarczuk, Hilton Als, Daniel Trilling, Jesmyn Ward and Turner Prize-winner Lubaina Himid.
