The Legacy of Lucy Little Bear by Barbara Robidoux
"The plot is poignant, the characters compelling, and the setting gorgeous. This is a little gem of a book. "
The Legacy of Lucy Little Bear by Barbara Robidoux
"This book is along the lines of Louise Erdrich to me. A story that builds as it goes, is never predictable and is always as tragic as real life. Beautifully written and a quick read!"

“The last introvert in a world of extroverts. Silence: my response to both emptiness and saturation. But silence frightens people. I had to learn how to talk. Out of politeness.”
Ariel Gore, Atlas of the Human Heart

“That kind of thinking [that writers must alleviate their guilt for leading a creative life] is based on the idea that the creative life is somehow self-indulgent. Artists and writers have to understand and live the truth that what we are doing is nourishing the world. William Carlos Williams said, "It is difficult to get the news from poems yet men die miserably every day for lack of what is found there." You can't eat a book, right, but books have saved my life more often than sandwiches. And they've saved your life... But we don't say, oh, Maya Angelou should have silenced herself because other people have other destinies. It's interesting, because artists are always encouraged to feel guilty about their work. Why? Why don't we ask predatory bankers how they alleviate their guilt? ”
Ariel Gore

“Your heart is the size of your fist; keep loving, keep fighting.”
Ariel Gore, Atlas of the Human Heart
