“In her brilliant new chapbook, master microfictionist Sarah Freligh creates characters who are simultaneously tough and vulnerable, revealing the weird light found in sad, unsolvable situations.These are the most delicious microfiction truffles one can find here on planet Earth and I swallowed them whole.”
– Meg Pokrass, author of The Loss Detector and Co-Editor of Best Microfiction
“Sarah Freligh is one of the best poets practicing the craft today, and to read her is to make contact with the divine.”
-Carrie L. Krucinski
