0 Reviews
Fiction. Part of Bottom Dog's "Working Lives" series. "In Jeanne Bryner's ECLIPSE, there's a master storyteller at work. While the characters in these stories struggle, it is a struggle blessed with hope. A hope we can all carry with us into the future"-Jim Daniels. "Bryner has rare gifts: a level gaze, a keen heart, and ears to hear what people mean by what they say. Her storytelling enables us to look at the searing light of a given soul. And her art-compassionate, often wry-also provides a filter, so we can bear what we look upon"-Marilous Awiakta. "These narratives emerge out of the sure hand and eye of an accomplished writer who offers an expansive and convincing aesthetic of human relationships"-Janet Zandy.
