Morning, 1908

Morning, 1908

A Novella by

Claire-Lousie Bennett's "Morning, 1908" is a study of how terror is born and how it can fester amongst seemingly serene surroundings. In his introduction, Declan Meade, the editor that first published this story in The Stinging Fly, writes, "What excites me about the story is the sense of complete and immediate access it offers into this woman's mind. The reader is invited right in, and rather than feeling as if we are being told about what happened, we are allowed to experience everything with her, in real time, as she experiences it herself. Not all that much happens, actually. There is a young man on the road, cows in a field, terror in the heart. The mind races." "Morning, 1908" is collected in POND, which will be publishedin the US by Riverhead Books in summer 2016.
