The Winter in Anna by Reed Karaim
"“We would like to think we will recognize the people who come to matter to us at first sight, but of course that’s absurd. They often slip into the corners of our lives, unnoticed, then taken for granted, until one day, if we are lucky, we see the..." Read more of this review »

The Winter in Anna by Reed Karaim
"5★
He is twenty and she is a young but older mother of two children. Paraphrasing from the author’s prose
To him she existed fully every day.

“She writes only in pencil, as if the words might need to be revoked--borrowed words, for the most part, plucked out of other mouths...”
Dawn Tripp, Game of Secrets

“I BOUGHT THIS house for the door. The house itself was a ruin, but I had to have that door. Over the years, I’ve painted it many times, all different ways: abstract, representational, blue, black, brown. I’ve painted it in the hot green of summer, in the dead of winter, clouds rushing past it, a lone yellow leaf drifting down. I painted the door open only once. Just before he died. In every picture after, it was closed.”
Dawn Tripp, Georgia: A Novel of Georgia O'Keeffe

“He'd dust the dirt off with his fingers, wash it in his mouth so it came lean off his tongue like a language.”
Dawn Tripp, Game of Secrets
