Stories by Sandra Thompson


“Deceptively quiet pieces that periodically kick out with deadly accuracy . . . A strong, sometimes devastating but ultimately hopeful collection by an exciting and gifted writer.”
The Nation

"'Ashes,' a daughter's story of her dying mother, is the little masterpiece of the group, lovely in its grief and guaranteed to show up in future anthologies."
Charlotte Observer

Sandra Thompson takes us inside the lives of women struggling to find their places among lovers, husbands and ex-husbands, mothers, and children in relationships where old rules do not apply and new rules have not yet been set.

Thompson's characters live in a world where dreams often supersede reality and things are not as they seem. Her style is sophisticated and subtle, and we experience her stories almost by osmosis. They stay with us afterwards to question their own realities.
