> "About her book,/Publishers Weekly/ (on 8/30/10) has said: "The beauty
> of this unconventional collection is in its details: each moment  
> offers
> a glimpse at a larger story while giving the reader intimate, wry, and
> acute details about the narrator or her surrounding characters.  This
> makes for a light and lively reading experience...."
>
>  "Like poetry, the stories are highly concentrated and contain strong
> images.  Like fiction, they narrate a movement through time.  With
> nothing extraneous, they pack a hard punch.  Finally, they are truly
> short: the longest is just over twelve pages, several are under five.
>
> Anne holds an MFA from the Bennington Writing Seminars and has studied
> Greek, Turkish, Hebrew, Arabic, French and Spanish.  Her work has
> appeared in over sixty literary reviews and anthologies.   She and her
> husband have two children. "
