Bathsheba Monk: Tight, Colorful, Breathtaking Tapestry

Bathsheba Monk has been making a splash in New York City lately with street productions enacting scenes from her novel, Nude Walker. She is also the author of a collection of linked stories called Now You See It … Stories from Cokesville, PA.

Tim O’Brien said “Bathsheba Monk is a writer I'll be talking about when I talk about brilliant new writers.”

Here’s what the brilliant Bathsheba Monk had so say about Tracks.

“From the first story in Eric D. Goodman’s novel in stories, Tracks, I knew I was in for an enjoyable ride. Goodman is a keen, compassionate and refreshingly un-ironic observer of the human condition. In Tracks, Goodman skillfully weaves stories of chance encounters, lost opportunities and new beginnings into a tight, colorful, breathtaking tapestry which he says is a train ride, but seems an awful lot like life.”

~Bathsheba Monk,
Author of Nude Walker and
Now You See It ... Stories from Cokesville, PA
