Zahny Guthrie has been with Watermark for nearly two years.
My frist attempt reading "In the Dream House," I had to stop half way through. The catharsis bound in these pages overwhelmed me. On a second attempt I was more patient with myself and I was rewarded with the most powerful and luminously human story I've read in a long time.
A poem in a tome's clothing, "Ducks, Newburyport" is an epic of the household, a shard reflecting this time, a chronicle of woman who is all of us. Never has reading felt more like dreaming. Ellmann has constructed a story unlike any other, and it will not be soon surpassed in its daring or art.
Redemptive and painfully empathetic, "Watermark" is a slap in the face splendor of a book of short stories.
"Professor Andersen's Night" is a prufrockian mystery, written in the enthralling and intellectual prose we expect from Dag Solstad.
Sometimes the words of a book reach out, grab you by the hair, and drag you into a story so magnificent that you wouldnt believe it exists, except that its right there in front of you. Non-chronology has never been as aunthentic, sexy, or magical as it is in A Prayer for Travelers. Tomar has earned a perminant place on my bookshelf.
Finally! My favorite book of short stories is out in paperback. Metamorphica is the perfect reimagining of Ovid's Metamorphosis; just as magical as the original, with a fresh breath of Mason's radical word-smithing.
A sidestepping adventure in myth and language.
Trickster Feminism is an intoxicating poetic journey through a post-modern, post-structural, intersectional waste land!
