it was amazing

I just met Andrew Malan Milward at a Florida book festival where we shared a panel on historical fiction. But we agreed that neither of us is writing strictly historical fiction. Rather, we are 'engaging' with history to draw out timeless literary themes. His new book of stories offers deeply researched and stunningly vivid portraits of Kansans at critical points in the history of the state of Kansas. Andrew can inhabit any person he wants - black, white, outlaw, struggling immigrant... His sense of voice is just superb. He studied with Marilynne Robinson so if you loved Gilead and Housekeeping, you will be glad you have found Andrew's stories. And he's going to be coming out with a novel. I can't wait.
