If anyone asks, you can tell them that contemporary America’s outstanding literary realist is named Lynn Crawford, and that she goes around disguised as a formalist. Read these “prose sestinas” and learn more than you may be willing to know about who we are and the “fortification resort” we live in–or just be entertained, if you can, by her verbal bravura.

The world Lynn Crawford creates in Simply Separate People is so bewitching and original she soon may find the Surgeon General classifying her work as dangerously addictive.
– Harry Mathews
Life and literature, Crawford suggests, is an experiment; both need invention–new responses and language. Crawford’s brave new novel is as fresh, weird, moving, and comic as it gets.

Haven’t wanted to read anything lately, certainly not anyof the 500 manuscripts and galleys I get a year. However, I found Solow fascinating. It reminds me of early John Hawkes which is still for me the best Hawkes. The whole dreamscape was especially vivid.
– Jim Harrison
Fiction. A stunningly attractive book, filled with adult characters who hold the world together with the huge effort of holding themselves together. Crawford draws her urban New World with the fancy of a poet and recreates its dreamy detail with the cruelty of an artist. Author City: DETROIT, MI USA
