Brian Oliu reviews Sarah Goldstein's Fables (Tarpaulin Sky Press, 2011) at Specter Magazine, and we are grateful.
Oliu calls Fables a "gorgeous intertwining of allegorical stories presented in tiny fragments, dare I say breadcrumbs!, that display a horrifying yet beautiful world where mayors keep bones in boxes and ghosts enter through the beaks of birds," but Oliu also notes "The language is reassuring, declarative: that we trust in whomever is telling us these fables, that the world that exists is a world that exists—that what happens here happens, that it will not disappear when someone wakes."
Good stuff. Read the full review here.
