I bought this a couple of summers ago during the final days of the Shaman Drum liquidaiton sale. I've had it on a pile of 'things ot read' and you've induced me to move it to the top. Thanks.

Oh, I'm glad, Jim! It's so, so good. She just had a novel come out this summer, too. I've been meaning to review it -- it's also very good, but this story collection stands far and away.

  • Isak is a space to celebrate tales and truth in the curious, joyful way embodied by the writer for which it is named. The name "Isak," after all, means "laughter," as she was fond of pointing out.

    By tales, I mean fiction (especially short fiction), as well as other literary and artistic narratives. By truth, I mean the world in which we live. I especially have my eye on creative social justice.
