It's Either Sadness or Euphoria Book Review: "Bright Shards of Someplace Else" by Monica McFawn
Thank you. Perhaps it was her idiosyncratic voice, or her flair for distinctive characters that the judges recognized. Or maybe it was her empathetic power. Either way, McFawn has talent.

In these eleven stories she manages to range from fantastic to satiric to poignant. She writes with an inventiveness and precision that startles, entertains, and convinces: of course that's what snow is like, or a dead horse, or an aggrieved father.
Her stories are fresh and often wonderfully strange but also deeply insightful and emotionally complex. McFawn's effervescent writing helps us both to see anew and to recognize ourselves. Her specializing in such types and their crazy experiments tells us that McFawn is a romantic, not of the love and nature type but of the Mary Shelley and Frankenstein type. Her protagonists choose trouble, even bad trouble, every time, because the alternative--which they see only too clearly--is the yawn of nothing at the far edge of the possible.
McFawn approaches each story differently, not as an author imposing a single voice on disparate narratives but as an artist listening to her characters and finding the particular voice each one requires. McFawn's empathy is astounding.

The rarest kind of literary debut--unpredictable and moving. Her specializing in such types and their crazy experiments tells us that McFawn is a romantic, not of the love and nature type but of the Mary Shelley andFrankenstein type. Her protagonists choose trouble, even bad trouble, every time, because the alternative—which they see only too clearly—is the yawn of nothing at the far edge of the possible.

The characters-an array of artists, scientists, songwriters, nannies, horse trainers, and poets-often try to pin down another's point of view, only to find that their own worldview is far from fixed.
