Fittingly, Blackman will speak Friday, April 12 at a celebration of language and stories, the 12 th annual Clemson Literary Festival. Once two authors had voted to publish, the book went on to the board, which also voted to publish. I swanned around my office with delight once I heard. It was a big confidence boost for me that they liked the book.

Would you like to tell us about a lower price? Alice is a motherless child, born to a motherless child, and raised with neither care nor grace. Her response to this multiple abandonment is a lifelong obsession with her best friend Ingrid, or Thingy, as Alice calls her, and a sort of fantastic narcissism wherein she figures herself as the nexus of a supernatural world she understands through a blend of mountain lore, indigenous Cherokee legend, and the dangerous idiom of the fairy-tale girl who enters the forest despite being warned. Alice attempts to tell Ingrid the story of her life: her friendship with Thingy; her troubled relationships with her father, a small-town sexual troubadour; her stepmother, a hard-minded business woman who treats all interactions as commerce; her marriage to her husband Jacob, a silent figure of tremendous will; and her growing suspicion that Ingrid is another girl-child around whom disaster accumulates.
