& Feeding Strays

Stefanie Freele

Feeding Strays is wonderful, full of strange, original invention. Never a cliche, seldom ever anything resembling a wasted word. Motherhood didn't seem to get in Ms. Freele's hair or her computer in the slightest, except perhaps to reinforce what was lurking in the bottom of her mind, waiting to be let loose.

-David Wagoner, A Map of the Night

With a poet's ear and a scientist's eye, Stefanie Freele recasts suburban ennui as existential terror, domestic drudgery as harrowing suspense. These stories are terrific - they are small in scope but their implications are enormous.

- J. Robert Lennon, Pieces For the Left Hand and Familiar
