“Outstanding....Alice Fulton reveals herself to be triumphantly at home in the short story.”—Boston Sunday Globe
Fulton is an award-winning poet, so it should come as no surprise that vivid descriptions abound…if this collection is any indication, Fulton may be firmly establishing herself in a different genre. She once said she is drawn to the symbolic elements of a poem, how they act as a "pattern of lace held together by tiny joining threads." Her prose, however, might be regarded as a tightly woven blanket. It's exciting to watch Fulton as she finds the right threads with which to create nuanced fiction, firmly bound.
