Editorial Reviews

“This is brilliant work—bold, true-hearted, and beautiful. Brickman believes in the reality of the body, but the body illumined by an unflinching intellect and indomitable spirit.” Sena Jeter Naslund, New York Times bestselling author
“Julie Brickman’s collection Two Deserts has its darknesses, of course, but also the startling, timely, cultural breadth and luminous grace scene for scene that she’s known for.” Philip F. Deaver, Flannery O’Connor Award–winning author of Silent Retreats
“Brickman’s storytelling takes many forms—all of them exhibiting her mastery of character and place. You will be transported, as I was.” Susan Vreeland, New York Times bestselling author
“Written in beautifully descriptive prose, Two Deserts is a collection of fourteen short stories that reveal deep reflections on life made by various different characters. Reading through each story is a peaceful drift down a lazy river on a beautiful spring day. Finishing each one is a profound realization of a kindred human emotion.” The US Review of Books
