Five Questions with Juman Malouf

Why did you accept the invitation to design the Spring 2022 edition of All-Story?
Zoetrope: All-Story is the only magazine I still receive in the mail! I always enjoy the stories—but, also, I love seeing how the designers completely reinvent each issue, which is always unexpected and wildly different from the last. I wanted a shot at it.

Introduction to “You Are Not I"
Sara Driver

MAKING OF
In the late seventies, I was enamored with the work of Paul and Jane Bowles. Their books were not always easy to find, especially Jane’s, as they went in and out of print. So when I heard in 1979 that a new collection of Paul’s short stories had been recently published by Black Sparrow Press, I ran to the only place that I knew would carry it: a small, specialized bookstore off Seventh Avenue in the West Village.


With the Collected Stories, 1939–1976 under my arm, I hurried home to dive in. “You Are Not I” was one of the first I read. It is among the very few of Paul’s stories that take place in America, and its ending shocked and dumbfounded me. I thought it would make a great film.


I was required to make a film to complete my master’s degree at NYU, and I knew I would have to adapt Paul’s story with exactly the same thoughts and fee . . .
