As Usual, We Picked A Good One

We’re pleased to report that Quiet Mountain Essays has published a glowing review of Perishables by Tina Egnoski. This fiction chapbook won the Fall, 2008 Black River Chapbook Competition “and as usual,” says the QME reviewer, “they picked a good one.”

This short story collection is filled with authentic Southern (think Floridian) voices, with each main character unselfconsciously sharing a slice of her life as she knows it to be, seemingly unaware of the poignancy and dignity with which she expresses it.
Something tells me that unlike the migrant friends of the title story, Egnoski (along with her cast of un-belle-like Southern gals) is here to stay.  I would happily read her next fresh offering…
