 The Best Small Fictions 2016

 September 6, 2016

 

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING

"The journal does not back away from drama. In “A Friend’s Daughter Dies,” Tina Barry reveals that the young woman had “A topiary of tattoos on track-ruined arms/etched blue jays preening/owls perched/Circling the dunes/of her collarbones.”

The Review Review, 11/14/17.

"Online Poetry Mag is Home for Strong Writers of Verse," Maria DePaul.

Review of The American Poetry Journal's fall 2017 issue.

"These narrators spill all kinds of family secrets, especially the younger ones. In Tina Barry’s “Going South,” a daughter recreates with diary entries her family’s last trip to Miami “before Dad switched families.” Subtly, we experience the sadness that has invaded their lives—the sister’s insomnia, the mother's restless feet and short love line. It ends with an image that hints at a terminus beyond the family’s return to New Jersey: “My sister threw a deck of cards out the car window. We watched them spiral tightly together down the highway, then blink out like dead stars as the wind drew them apart."

Tina Barry is something of a micro sorceress. And she does just that; she surprises. In these stories, from a linked collection about Marc Chagall’s relationship with Virginia Haggard McNeil, Barry takes us on a journey in three perfectly crafted flashes; each one satisfying, bringing us into land in the final sentence.
