Fall Together, Paperback/Sarah Strickley

Brand: Gold Wake Press Collective

Sarah Strickley's work is bold, honest, and confident. Her language is the perfect combination of lyricism and directness. Fall Together is remarkable for its inventive stories that carry the reader into dark territory. A remarkable debutChris Offutt, author of My Father, the Pornographer and Country Dark The sensibility overseeing these powerful stories is quirky and playful; Strickley is a connoisseur of a myriad of source materials, from contemporary tabloid fodder to age-old literature and legend. In each piece, a wholly human character comes to life to delight and instruct the reader, to make her revisit what she thought was the familiar world and find it, somehow, faintly shifted and newly fresh. Antonya Nelson, author of Bound and Funny Once This collection is both artful and absolutely ferocious. Sarah Anne Strickley calmly follows her stories into darkness. I honestly can't think of many writers who are this fearless. Chris Bachelder, author of National Book Award Finalist, The Throwback Special
