beasts in their wisdom

(The Snail’s Pace Press, 2004)

...collects ten stories previously published in such journals as The Kenyon Review, The Paris Review, Prism International, and TriQuarterly. Publication was funded by the New York State Council on the Arts. The book is illustrated by Lynn Hassan.

Author William Kennedy describes the stories in this way. “In Garber’s uncanny tales the margins of real and imaginary, human and animal, give way to an eerie domain of magical ambiguity. A bear occupies a woman’s imagination like a dybbuk, a randy goat transforms three lives, a woman has the throat of a doe, a commuter flight turns into a mythic journey. These are provocative stories, vividly written, and full of surprises—the work of a grandly talented storyteller.”
