"This work is unlike any other, in its range of rich, conjuring imagery and its dexterity, its smart voice. Carroll-Hackett doesn’t spare us—but doesn’t save us—she draws a blueprint of power and class with her unflinching pivot: matter-of-fact and tender." —Jan Beatty

Monday Must Read!

Karen Headshot May1 9 08 033This week, meet Karen Paul-Holmes, author of Untying the Knot, from Aldrich Press, a memoir in poetry, telling the story of the end of long marriage and the healing that follows.

Tom Lux says this lovely book is written with “grace, humor and self-awareness and without a dollop of self-pity,” and William Wright says the book “possesses the potential to teach us ways to navigate and ultimately transcend the difficulties of divorce and the feelings of loss and grief such division engenders.”

Karen, in support of other writers, also hosts a critique group in Atlanta and a Writers’ Night Out in the Blue Ridge Mountains. You can see more about Karen and Untying the Knot at the following links
