Silk by Grace Dane Mazur

Issue #72
Spring 1997

Robert Boswell recommends
Silk, stories by Grace Dane Mazur: “Mazur is a former microbiologist, and the stories in her first collection offer a means of apprehending the world that is both intellectually fascinating and sensually wired. It is either a book of the mind about pleasures of the flesh, or a book of the flesh about the currents of the mind. Mazur gives not even a nod to trendy explanations for the complex workings of the heart, choosing instead to do what good literature has always done: cast new light on old mysteries. This is a strange and terrific book.” (Lumen)
