I am perfect, and flawed.
And perfectly flawed.
I am generous
I am open and private.
I tell stories, and truth, and lies.
I was born a raging fire
To bare-handed parents
Who did their best to avoid blisters.
Somehow I kept my spark alive.
I remain ablaze in a world of water
Intent on putting out my fire.
Dylan Thomas understood:
I will not go gentle into that dark night.
Review of my short story, "Dead People's Things for Sale"
If Hitchcock lived in Appalachia
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Dead People's Things for Sale (Kindle Edition)Just finished reading Hamilton's story, and enjoyed it greatly! In the very first paragraph, she settles the reader right into a genuinely Appalachian experience. She has captured the tone, the vernacular, the bitter humor and the horror of mountain people. This story would have made a very good "Alfred Hitchcock" episode. If you enjoy the short stories of Davis Grubb, you'll enjoy this!
