"Places in the World a Woman Could Walk is deeply felt and bitingly precise. The author's dual professions of farmer and poet give the stories two gifts: an intimate, gritty sense of life on the land and a skill with language that amounts to alchemy."--Anne Tyler
The women in Janet Kauffman's spirited stories are unafraid to look closely at their flawed lives. Burdened by the struggles of a rural existence, they are determined to embrace the simplest pleasures with a true heart. Whether slaughtering a favorite cow or leaving a violent husband, these characters make tough choices and live with the consequences.
"A distinctive voice both quirky and down-to-earth, totally unsentimental and capable of rendering reality's baffling undertones."--Library Journal
Janet Kauffman grew up on a tobacco farm in Pennsylvania. She now works her own farm and teaches in Michigan. She is the author of three works of fiction, Obscene Gestures for Women, Collaborators, and The Body in Four Parts and two books of poetry, The Weather Book and Where the World Is. Collaborators and The Body in Four Parts are both available through Graywolf.
