Wan reviewed in berfrois

Titled “The Artist and the Anti-Apartheid Activist,” Jackie Law’s review of Dawn Promislow’s Wan in berfrois is an excellent and astute piece of criticism.

From the review: “The evocation of time and place is exquisite. Dawn Promislow’s story is told in spare, yet layered, prose that while precise is also sensuous. Unfolding events are recounted with care, the narrator seeking honesty in her mining of memories. Tension is built through a moving timeline – the now and the then – readers made aware of changes before key details are shared. Although a common frame around which an author may build, here it works seamlessly, adding a further dimension.”
