About this title


"Are these stories autobiographical or fiction?" the author is asked. "Yes," she says. Life does not provide perfect plots and all the cool characters you need if you hope to hook a reader-but imagination stitched to scraps of experience and observation can create a patchwork quilt called fiction. The stories follow the Law of the Imagination: Tell the truth and the lies take care of themselves. Any links that a reader may invent are reasonable even if not true. A teenage daughter enduring a home perm... a saleswoman coveting a thin gold chain... a woman seeing off her college-bound son and visiting parents all on the same day... In this collection of exquisitely nuanced stories, it isn't so much what is said, but what is left unspoken that gives Powell's work such emotional complexity and firepower. Proof positive that a good story is "truer than the truth." - Joni B. Cole , author of Toxic Feedback: Helping Writers Survive and Thrive

About the Author:

Enid Levinger Powell has been writing more years than she wants you to know, resulting in the publication of stories, poems, and humorous essays in literary and popular magazines and newspapers. Along the way, she's won a couple of fiction prizes and a poetry prize, worth mentioning but not bragging about. She is a founding editor of StoryQuarterly. She has taught writing classes at Loyola University and Columbia College, and currently holds seminars at Newberry Library, and private classes in her home in Chicago, Illinois.
