Amy

  1. “I like literary fiction. I like writing that is poetic. I like writers who I sense struggle to find the perfect word. I like writers who make me see the world differently; whether they have a talent for imaginative description, or have their characters express insights that feel absolutely spot on, but brand new to me. I like fiction that makes me question existing ideas. I also love writers who have a brilliant knack for making things funny. Besides fiction, the humorous-yet-poignant essay is one of my favorite things to read.”
