Little: Novels by Emily Anderson reviewed in Ploughshares Blog

Emily-Cov-lgerLittle: Novels
Emily Anderson
BlazeVOX, August 2015
158 pp; $20

Buy: paperback

The vogue for erasure poems continues, which is good news. Done skillfully, the erasure poem encompasses what Samuel Johnson called “the two most engaging powers of an author: new things are made familiar, and familiar things are made new.” Srikanth Reddy’s Voyager discovers within Kurt Waldheim’s anodyne autobiography the confession that ought to have been there; Ronald Johnson’s RADI OS (the genre’s great progenitor) finds an eerie new visionary melody within the organ music of Paradise Lost.

Emily Anderson’s Little starts from texts that, in some quarters, are as familiar as and perhaps even more beloved than those of Joyce or Milton: Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little Housebooks. In our time, in the light of what the United States’ imperial westward drive meant to native peoples and to the environment, the books are vulnerable to several kinds of political critique. I can also attest, however (having discovered the books as an adult, reading the whole series aloud twice, once to each daughter), that they have a plainspoken poetry, a clarity of detail, and a psychological acuity that earn them a spot not far from Huckleberry Finn on the shelf of our compromised national classics.

The Writers’ Circle and Other Stories by Michael Gessner Now Available!

In this stunning collection Michael Gessner pays full attention to the marginal and the marginalized –– whether unwashed, rejected, condemned, or simply unusual –– and brilliantly inhabits them, evoking their passions, their yearnings, and also the rare strands of hope that sustain and illuminate.

—Grace Dane Mazur
Author of HINGES: Meditations on the Portals of the Imagination

The Writers’ Circle and Other Stories by Michael Gessner is a celebration of life’s texture of existence. Through profound empathy, each story has radiance, a voice that is alive, a language in bloom, which enunciates a ferocious intelligence, which is both strange and familiar in a way that is entirely compassionate, examining, and inspiring. Gessner’s post-noir writing is adroit, sophisticated, and at times astounding.

—Geoffrey Gatza, author of Apollo

Michael Gessner has authored 10 books, and has had work featured in American Literary Review, The French Literary Review, The Journal of The American Medical Association, North American Review, Oxford Magazine, Rue des Beaux-Arts (Paris,) The Yale Journal of Humanities in Medicine, and others. His prose has been called “Structurally ingenious,” (Jonathan Galassi, Farrar, Straus & Giroux,) and “A great talent,” (Ray Powers, Scott & Field.) A list of other publications, reviews, and readings may be found at: www.michaelgessner.com. He lives in Tucson, Arizona with his wife and their dog “Irish.”
