I have the Answer by Kelly Fordon

“What a beautiful book! As I finished the last of these astute, moving, and often funny stories, I was reminded of something a fellow writer once said to an audience of fans: “What I want is not so much that you’ll get into my book but that my book will get into you.”
–Julia Glass, National Book Award-winning author of “Three Junes.”

The Woolfer endorsed the book as well:
“I met Kelly through this community when she published a wonderful collection of poetry that Sidney and I just adored. Now’s she’s come out with a story collection and it’s FABULOUS. So good. I hope she doesn’t mind me saying this, but I’m reminded of ht eway I felt 30 years ago reading Ann Beattie stories. About ordinary relationships and loves and losses, beautifully written with a wonderful balance of humor and sadness. Just the sort of thing I adore!”
–Nina Lorez Collins
