Where Love Is Found 24 Tales of Connection (Paperback)
|Author: Susan (EDT)/ Swanson-Davies Burmeister-Brown||Editor: Susan Burmeister-Brown Linda B. Swanson-Davies||As Told By: Susan Burmeister-Brown|
|For more than a decade, the literary quarterly "Glimmer Train" has sought out and championed the most compelling short fiction written today, by both established luminaries and fresh new voices. This stunning new anthology probes the whole range of human relationships -- lovers, friends, family members, spouses, even one's beliefs and dreams. |
In "Beneath the Earth of Her," acclaimed writer Karen E. Outen delicately probes the life of a loving, passionate married couple at odds over the prospect of having children. In "Gary Garrison's Wedding Vows," novelist Ron Carlson offers a poignant and delightful tale about a young woman who escapes the rigors of academia and finds love
and purpose at a bird sanctuary in Utah. And in "The Marvelous Yellow Cage," O. Henry Award-winner Charlotte Forbes examines an elderly woman's relationships with her estranged children, her deceased husband, her loyal housekeeper, and a lifetime's accumulation of possessions. Stories by Quinn Dalton, Louise Erdrich, and a host of other writers dig deeply into the joys and sorrows of human connection -- enlarging our perspective and refining the language of the heart. "Where Love Is Found" is a valentine for literary lovers and a delicious treat for those who crave short fiction by some of today's finest writers.
