Simply Peregrinations and Possibilities


From Junot Díaz, fiction editor of the Boston Review and author of The Brief and Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao ( Winner of the Pulitzer prize), " I’m looking for fiction in which a heart struggles against itself, in which the messy unmanageable complexity of the world is revealed. Sentences that are so sharp they cut the eye.”

And for those of us who ask—What's autobiography or memoir or fictive recall?

A new book by Janet Frame has recently been published;
"... after her death, another manuscript surfaces, an autobiographical novel written during her time abroad that tells, perhaps, what her life was really like.

It’s an appealing story, but the truth may be a little more complicated, for the author is legendary New Zealand writer Janet Frame, and for Frame, personal life and art are always intertwined, at least a little."

From the Bucks County Writing Workshop's blog masthead:

Writing is spooky. There is no routine of an office to keep you going, only the blank page each morning, and you never know where your words are coming from, those divine words.
