Solstice Review: Summer 2016

13 Jul 2016 / Justin

Our first Solstice Review is on the shelf! Read prose and poetry from 7 authors in Ugly Sapling’s first lit review.

 

Solstice Review: Summer 2016
 

An accident during the summer of 1969. A home that’s become a breeding ground for spiders, fed on dirty dishes and discontent. Two teenaged girls, one aching to grow up, the other bound down by secrets. A couple struggling to stay together under the pressure of a parental request. In its first ever Solstice Review, Ugly Sapling features work by up-and-coming writers as well as literary veterans that explores the dark corners of family, duty, and the ties that bind us. Set in the unrelenting heat of summer, this collection of longer-format prose and poetry deals with issues of love and loss, nostalgia and heartbreak, and the aches of growing up. The stories demand we reassess our understanding of relationships–husband and wife, father and child, friend and friend–and ultimately ask us how far we’d go for the ones we love.
