Winter The Persistence of Rivers: an essay on moving water, by Alison Townsend
Alison Townsend shapes the memories within this book like the meditative and meandering rivers that inspire them. The Persistence of Rivers evokes Thoreau and Dillard, yet Townsend’s prose remains masterfully singular in its subject, lyricism, and poignancy.
Spring Quantum Physics & My Dog Bob: stories, by Pat Rushin A father, sick of speaking, takes a lifelong vow of silence. A literature PhD candidate falls prey to her psycho poet roommate. A dog pining for steak spontaneously combusts. Pat Rushin’s latest collection fuses the familiar and the uncanny. Each darkly funny story is like a parallel universe where everyday characters find themselves in a reality slightly askew from the one we know.

In Other Orlandos, the city’s writers twist a familiar word into new contexts and connotations.
