Sleeping in Velvet

(1997)
A collection of stories by

 
 
Fiction. Short stories. Thaisa Frank weaves short narratives together into a meditation upon the gleaming fragments of memory that make up private history. "I know my mother the way I know the air. I know her the way I know cats who come for an evening and then live on. I know her the way I know a garden in Kansas, over thirty years ago, brimming with lilacs and a rough stone birdbath." (from "Eating"). Frank is a Contributing Editor of the San Francisco Review, teaches creative writing at the University of San Francisco, is a co-host of the Writers Conference on the WELL, and has a private practice as a psychotherapist. She is also the author of DESIRE and A BRIEF HISTORY OF CAMOUFLAGE, both available from SPD.
