Blurbs, Press & Reviews

Border Markers is terrific and unsettling. Jenny Ferguson’s flash fiction debut serves up gritty kaleidoscopic fragments of quotidian tragedy in a small prairie city. Written in blunt and broken prose, as fractured as the lives they portray, these engrossing linked stories relate the tough noir tale of a family and its outliers, all blue-collar victims with the urge to survive – prison, ghostly hauntings, foreign countries, daily life.”
—dee Hobsbawn-Smith, author of What Can’t Be Undone and Wildness Rushing In

“These chapters are flash fiction wonders. Delivered in a style both economical and replete, they resonate on live borders: between one province and another, between communion and solitude, between reality and the supernatural, between despair and hope.”
—Susan Holbrook, author of Throaty Wipes and Joy Is So Exhausting

“Ferguson is a master of short form… [Border Markers is] the kind of book you instantly want to re-read.”
—Will J. Fawley, The Winnipeg Review
