Visit Ron Slate's website to read his review of Sandra Beasley's Theories of Falling: www.ronslate.com
Just a taste: "Displaying a large, feisty ambition as well as the talent to realize it, Sandra Beasley’s first book, Theories of Falling, reminds me of something Robert Frost wrote to B.F. Skinner in 1926: "All that makes a writer is the ability to write strongly and directly from some unaccountable and almost invincible personal prejudice." Beasley is so equipped. Her persona cultivates a precocious apprehension of the nature of intimacy. She's the one who cuts through conventional perception to reveal the deeper dynamic."
