Nomads

From fiction writer and journalist Carol Bergman comes a potpourri of very short stories, aphorisms, anecdotes, verbal snapshots, and mini-essays: NOMADS. In these subtle, profound and original works, each using a different narrative persona, Bergman demonstrates her experience as a phrasemaker and storyteller. Like Lydia Davis and Czeslaw Milosz, her writing is both unique and difficult to classify, yet its cumulative affect in this volume is clear. Humorous, perceptive, precise, wry, sometimes chilling, she writes about war and peace, love and disappointment, the mundane and the sublime, with deep attention and warmth
