Marin-based writer Peg Alford Pursell discusses her new collection of stories, Show Her a Flower, a Bird, a Shadow with Stefan Kiesbye.

 

About Show Her a Flower, a Bird, a Shadow:

A collection of hybrid prose and micro-fictions with praise from Margot Livesey, Antonya Nelson, Joan Silber, Peter Orner and others.

"Reading this book is like walking through a snowfall of petals—and thorns. There is a light airy feeling to Peg Alford Pursell's delicately worded fragments that is seductive, at first, until you realize that each swirl contains small stabs of loss and pain and violence. A really beautiful, unique collection." —Molly Giles, author of In All the Wrong Places and Iron Shoes
