SoMa Literary Review


As a general rule, themes are highly suspect, and as expected, SoMa delivers a casual, west coast sensibility that is perhaps too casual in its west coast, literary aesthetic. Much of the writing is compelling but unwieldy, in the tradition of young writers honing their craft. Too often though, desultory prose wanders like an east coast slacker turned west coast barista stoned out on literary Manifest Destiny. Best for Cali enthusiasts and for resentful, snow-blown New Englanders who can’t afford airfare.
