Judge’s Citation by Danielle Dutton


There’s such energy in this story, a really wonderful movement of thought and feeling. I felt surprised by these movements again and again, consistently delighted by what the story brought before me with each new shift, each new insight, each new image or figure.¬†Reading it I kept thinking Where did this come from?¬†and that’s my favorite feeling to have when I read. That shock of unrecognition. That feeling of finding something that feels right and also new.
