“Selecting stories for the anthology, The Ground Beneath Her Feet & other stories & poems was no easy task, but from the first read Harrison Solow’s ‘The Postmaster’s Song’ leapt off the page. The style is engaging and innovative. From the three possible beginnings to the delightful end, which invites the next leap of imagination, the reader is treated as an intelligent participant in this part fairy-tale, part creative non-fiction story. It’s refreshing to find an author who can not only spin tales, but also take risks – crossing genres, pushing the boundaries of perception, playing with language – and all with a light touch, beautifully controlled. It’s an exquisite story, finely told and will certainly make you want to read more of Harrison Solow’s work.”

Life lived on shifting ground, in the extraordinary moments when something cracks and something new happens is the underlying thread that unites the stories and poems in The Ground Beneath Her Feet. From Alice Keys award winning title story in which the cracks in the wall become the metaphor for both breaking and healing to beautifully crafted poems of Sue Wood, in which a comb burning foreshadows death with surprising grace and white becomes a metamorphosis; from Harrison Solow’s hypnotic, fable-like prose to Clare Jay’s precise, assured poetry the writing in this anthology engages and surprises, discomforts and delights.
