6/25 Victoria Fish | A Brief Moment of Weightlessness

 

vf cover

A Brief Moment of Weightlessness is a collection of short stories that illuminate the beauty and extraordinariness of "ordinary" lives. Each explores the human desire for connectedness and grace, ranging from large upheavals to smaller moments. These astute and poignant stories take on serious issues of injury, infidelity, death, and war, but without a sense of gloom that could overwhelm them, often - but not always - exposing that glimmer of hope or opportunity. Told in a voice that cuts to the quick of a character or conflict, these stories explore and celebrate those small moments that make our lives extraordinary.


v fish"Fish creates her settings with the luscious detail of the trained writer’s eye. Her characters seem so real we feel we know them - are them - as they face situations we fear and with which we may be all too familiar." - Katharine Britton, author of Her Sister’s Shadow and Little Island


In addition to writing short stories, Victoria Fish is pursuing her Masters of Social Work. Her stories have appeared in numerous literary magazines, including Hunger Mountain, Slow Trains, Wild River Review, and Literary Mama. She lives with her husband and three boys in the hills of Vermont. A Brief Moment of Weightlessness is her first book.
