About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
In keeping with his statement, Bell includes practically as many women writers as men, many of whom are African American. Add to that mix a Native American and an Indian American (born in West Virginia). Three of the writers are veterans: Jill McCorkle, Wendell Berry and Elizabeth Spencer. Many of the others are newcomers and at least one writer, Clinton J. Stewart, has a first published story. They hail from East Tennessee, West Tennessee, Kentucky, Louisiana, North Carolina, Illinois (transplated to New Orleans), Georgia, Mississippi, South Carolina, Kansas (transplanted to Florida), Oklahoma (college in North Carolina), and Virginia.
The subject matter is as varied as the writers. A woman learns to weld ("Muscle Memory"), a youngster learns to hunt ("Bird Dog") and a father is reunited with a daughter he lost in a divorce ("Sightings"). Many of the stories entertain-- is there a better reason to read fiction?-- or make a statement about what it means to be human and often say something profound that turns a light on for the reader.Read more ›
