THE MAN WHO DANCED WITH DOLLS
The Whiting Foundation selection committee “found The Man Who Danced with Dolls an enchanting, haunting, uncanny tale, bringing to mind the strange and unforgettable stories of Mavis Gallant. The voice is singular, the story a lyric meditation on loss that feels familiar yet wholly original in the telling, each sentence a feat of musicality, each moment in the narrative building a world that lodges in the reader’s memory.
THE FOLLOWING SEA
In the memoir-in-progress, The Following Sea, the atmosphere of family secrets are very powerful, evocative of Michael Ontdaatje’s memoir, Running in the Family.
