Marra's ability to dig beneath the surface and find the jewels, the moments, that define an individual and then present those experiences as a universal experience is breathtaking. Available now.
 
 
The Longest Night by Andria Williams

The Universal Physics of Escape by Elizabeth Gonzalez

At times whimsical, at times rife with the echoes of loneliness and isolation, Gonzalez's collection explores difficult human emotions through stories built on nature, physics, astronomy and religion. Read my full review at Small Press Book Review. Available now.
