The final chapbook from last year’s open reading period is Small and Fierce by Andrea Fischer. It’s the type of collection that we have a soft spot for . . . a story of growing up and finding a place in the world. A story of finding love (hard love, intense love) and losing love. Andrea takes us to Europe and back. She introduces us to tenderness and brutality, and the many points in between.
From “Both Small and Fierce”:
“There is your hand, yes—
now skimming my breasts,
then patting, listening now—
waiting for the tumblers to click,
a burglar curled up in my lap,
hungry, wanting more.”
