The Writers’ Circle and Other Stories by Michael Gessner Now Available!

In this stunning collection Michael Gessner pays full attention to the marginal and the marginalized –– whether unwashed, rejected, condemned, or simply unusual –– and brilliantly inhabits them, evoking their passions, their yearnings, and also the rare strands of hope that sustain and illuminate.

—Grace Dane Mazur
Author of HINGES: Meditations on the Portals of the Imagination

The Writers’ Circle and Other Stories by Michael Gessner is a celebration of life’s texture of existence. Through profound empathy, each story has radiance, a voice that is alive, a language in bloom, which enunciates a ferocious intelligence, which is both strange and familiar in a way that is entirely compassionate, examining, and inspiring. Gessner’s post-noir writing is adroit, sophisticated, and at times astounding.

—Geoffrey Gatza, author of Apollo
