I'm so pleased with this review from Libby Maxwell and published by Mom Egg Review. MER has long been one of my favorite literary journals, so this is especially thrilling. I could easily quote the entire review, but I'll limit myself to this: "Pursell’s honesty encompasses not only the truths that aren’t told, but the ones that can’t be known, and yet touch our lives all the same." And ask that you check out the astute attention Maxwell focuses on my book at the journal.
Side note: MER is open for submissions. Mom Egg Review seeks your best poetry, fiction, and creative prose for the 16th annual print issue. We publish work by writers who are mothers or by others about motherhood. This is themed issue —the theme is MOTHERS PLAY/MOTHERS WORK— we will only publish work that relates to this theme. Deadline is August 15, 2017.
