Fiction. Short Stories.

Poetry. The poems in Sunni Wilkinson's THE MARRIAGE OF THE MOON AND THE FIELD show us history, affection, private struggle, and the common life with a kind of grave, irony-tinged happiness that is rare in the poetry of our time. Her poems turn away from complaint, as though she had set out to reveal instead the domestic life of intelligence in all its color, warmth, and depth.
