About From Here:
The twelve stories in FROM HERE explore the dislocations and intersections of people searching, running away, staying put. Their physical and emotional landscapes run the gamut, but in the end, they're all searching for a place to call home.
Praise for From Here:
"From the Chechnyian girl sucked into the drug world, the alcoholic professor who uses his daughter to dodge a rap, from hippie graffiti to the "wet clicking of a bird-like heart," Jen Michalski writes down the beast, and you remember. Strong sentiment, strong stories." - Terese Svoboda, Author of Tin God
"Jen Michalski's characters seem to breathe through the pages of this emotionally expansive collection. Each story is a world in which the reader to linger--not to seek refuge but to gain insight, and perhaps, to find a kindred soul." - Dawn Raffel, author of the Year of Long Division
"This is short fiction at its moody, character-driven best. The people you meet are so vivid and so sympathetic that their joys and sorrows will quickly become your own. I haven't decided which is my favorite story, but I know my favorite line. "Good luck with your broken things." Fantastic." - Matthew Norman, author of Domestic Violets
