Product Details


The Problem with MurmurLee is a brave and beautiful book.  It might be called a mystery, but the questions it asks are not who killed or even how or why.  The questions Fowler asks are the ones we all ask: What is the meaning of one human life?  How do we cope with loss, sorrow, or with our deepest fears?  Where she takes us is not to mourning but to celebration.  I loved Murmur Lee and will never forget her.”    
—Dorothy Allison, author of Bastard Out of Carolina

Praise for Connie May Fowler

“If writing is a gift, then Connie May Fowler must be endowed with the gifts of ten muses.”
—Amy Tan, author of The Joy Luck Club and The Opposite of Fate

“[Before Women Had Wings is] a thing of heartrending beauty, a moving exploration of love and loss, violence and grief, forgiveness and redemption.”
Chicago Tribune

“Connie May Fowler writes with great sympathy and insight.”
—Lee Smith, author of Saving Grace

“There is no denying the depth of Connie May Fowler’s talent …”
New York Times Book Review

“[Fowler’s] prose is never less than as sinewy as cypress trees and as right as Christmas cake … Few writers capture poverty’s weird chemistry of aching hope and grinding pessimism like Fowler.”
