Are these stories autobiographical or fiction? the author is asked. Yes, she says. Life does not provide perfect plots and all the cool characters you need if you hope to hook a readerbut imagination stitched to scraps of experience and observation can create a patchwork quilt called fiction. The stories follow the Law of the Imagination: Tell the truth and the lies take care of themselves. Any links that a reader may invent are reasonable even if not true. A teenage daughter enduring a home perm... a saleswoman coveting a thin gold chain a woman seeing off her college-bound son and visiting parents all on the same day... In this collection of exquisitely nuanced stories, it isnt so much what is said, but what is left unspoken that gives Powells work such emotional complexity and firepower. Proof positive that a good story is truer than the truth. Joni B. Cole , author of Toxic Feedback: Helping Writers Survive and Thrive What did you like best about this book? This book is filled with extraordinary characters and diverse plotting. I eagerly read through it while wondering what next the book held in store for me. I believe its strength, aside from the excellent writing skills, lies in the way you captured the essence of our lives. I identified with so many of the chapters, saying to myself, yes, that's the way it is, that's what happened, that's how I felt. I particularly liked Scenes with a View that captures the young daughter moving into her first place and the parents' discomfort with it. I remember how vulnerable I felt at that time. How hard I tried to make my place perfect, or at least good enough to gain my parents' approval. How can the author improve this book? It would be difficult to say how you could improve this book. I thought the writing was superb, characterization the same, and the stories tugged at my heart. I cried at the end. Tears fill my eyes even as I write these words. Congratulations on a lovely book. If you are not a winner this year, it is because there are so many excellent entries. Writer's Digest Judge's commentary
