Portable childhoods
Klages, Ellen
Adult Fiction KLAGES

Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

Klages, whose debut novel, Green Glass Sea (2006), won the Scott O?Dell Award for Historical Fiction, demonstrates both superior writing skill and a wide range in an impressive short story collection that defies easy categorization. The 16 selections, three of which are original to the volume, include moving mainstream tales of human relationships, like the title story, about a mother and daughter, as well as fantasy and science fiction. The author is equally adept at short, twisty narratives that make the most of premises that could be gimmicks in lesser hands, like the recursive "Mobius, Stripped of a Muse." This collection will linger in the memory long after read-ing, and should help garner a larger audience for Klages?s forthcoming second novel. (May) Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
