THE WHITE ROAD AND OTHER STORIES - tania hershman
THE WHITE ROAD and other stories
"These stories are acute, meticulous, memorable. Tania Hershman is definitely a writer worth watching."
- Toby Litt, author of ‘I Play the Drums in A Band Called Okay’, 'Adventures in Capitalism' and 'Exhibitionism'.
"Incredibly lush, intelligent, seductive, Hershman’s collection reveals a marvelously varied repertoire of narrative styles and subjects that are so compelling, so deliciously readable, it’s impossible to finish one story without quickly beginning another."
- Sunshine O’Donnell, author of ‘Open Me’
"Though Ms. Hershman is willing to go anywhere in her imagination, her stories are anchored by a poignant awareness of sorrow beneath the surface. The White Road is a unique combination of narrative extravagance and human intimacy."
- Melvin Jules Bukiet, author of ‘Strange Fire' and 'A Faker's Dozen’
"Tania Hershman's very short stories manage to pack the punch of fiction many times longer. Her strategy is highly original,consistently interesting, and astonishingly moving. Joining the impersonal facts of scientific research with our human fragility, complexity and tragedy, Hershman extracts poignancy out of the laws of nature."
- Rebecca Newberger Goldstein, author of 'The Mind-Body Problem' and 'Incompleteness: The Proof and Paradox of Kurt Godel'
