Blurb: M. Allen Cunningham

I’ve recently been introduced to the stunning, literary work of M. Allen Cunningham, author of the Green Age of Asher Witherow, Lost Son, and the story collection, Date of Disappearance, among other titles. He’s also the publisher of Atelier26, a wonderful new small press also based in Portland.

When I read some of his work, and The Beauty of Ordinary Things by Harriet Scott Chessman and published by Atelier26, I asked for a blurb for Kate Gray’s Carry the Sky, thinking there was a match of styles and artistic intent between Kate’s prose and M. Allen’s work as writer and as a publisher. Here’s what he had to say:

Carry the Sky is a dazzling narrative mosaic about innocence lost, the ghosts we grieve, and the emptiness of some forms of discipline and delineation. Kate Gray gives us a ‘page-turner’ in the best sense: you’ll want to read both fast and slow, moving back and forth through this fearlessly told story, savoring.”

– M. Allen Cunningham, author of The Green Age of Asher Witherow and Lost Son

We’ll celebrate the launch of Carry the Sky this Friday, Sept. 5, at 7:30 p.m., at Powell’s City of Books, upstairs in the Pearl Room.
