A NICE THING SOMEONE ONCE SAID ABOUT MY WORK

“…it is fitting that many of the characters in this issue are children yet the narrators decidedly adult. Katie Schmid’s narrator in ‘The Boys of the Midwest 1 Through 5’, for instance, is sly about it, skulking foxily behind reedy sentences such as, “On weekends after church they disappear into uncultivated strips of prairie to tend their silent wounds. To inflict still more wounds upon each other”, and the narrator disappears with them, waiting till the last paragraph (or chapter, really) for one of those rare final revelations worth waiting for.

I have never met Katie Schmid, but I know she bleeds from her fingers.”
