There's a healing Eastern wind swirling through hospital corridors and exam rooms, buffeting the Arctic blasts of impersonal Western medical care--and its source may surprise you. Meet three faces from a new generation of physicians trained at Maine Medical Center who are practicing at the crossroads of alternative and traditional medicine and wholly enjoying the breeze. Forget health care reform, this is health care (r)evolution.

This story begins and ends at home. Rural Maine, 1950s: in a kitchen powered by counter-top appliances and a dangerously bipolar four-burner electric, my mother practiced a culinary sorcery that would have been any hungry kid’s dream come true. Homecooking—one indivisible word describing not only what we ate but how we lived. The present story is about people similarly afflicted with an inability to separate the domus from the queen of domestic arts.

Does Maine have a special appeal for writers? If so, Josh Bodwell, the new executive director of the Maine Writers and Publishers Alliance, speculates that it might have something to do with the "Yankee-ness" of the state. "There’s that real mending-wall mentality," he says. "People respect writers, and writers need that. They need to hole up and write. But when people in Maine know something is up with their neighbor, they come out to be of support." Several Maine authors who have found the state particularly felicitous have published, or are about to publish, new work this season. Here are seven of them.

On the fourth floor of a building on 26th Street in New York City, there is an enclave of nautical New England, a space full of the lore of the Atlantic, a celebration of seafarers and grizzly wharf types. At first glance you might think you stumbled into a fishermen museum in downtown Portland rather than the New York showroom and part-time creative center of the Maine-based clothing label Rogues Gallery.

When Gita Pullapilly, producer of the documentary The Way We Get By, went to a screening in Orono in April, she expected to just show the film and get some audience feedback. But the screening also resulted in something else: a free wedding for her and her fiancé, Aron Gaudet.Add a comment
