Kathryn Davis receives Lannan award

Kathryn Davis has been awarded a Lannan Foundation award. Her writing is evocative, compelling, and subtle as a snake. I recommend The Girl Who Trod on a Loaf.

“I like to think of Kathryn Davis as the love child of Virginia Woolf and Lewis Carroll, with a splash of Nabokov, Emily Bronte, and Angela Carter in the gene pool.” — Joy Press, Village Voice


"I’m interested in the plight of a character embarked on a journey through an utterly unfamiliar (and frequently fantastic) landscape…. The quest itself has never interested me as much as the chance to describe that other world." -Kathryn Davis

Thanks for the recommendation Linera. I like Woolf and Bronte, so Davis is in my range.
