Author's Bio

My short story collection, The Principle of Ultimate Indivisibility (Bliss Plot Press), is available by order from booksellers everywhere. For reviews and more information, see http://ultimate-indivisibility.com. **** NY Times bestselling memoirist Susan Richards says: "Rich, layered images take us deep inside the lives of Robison's characters, their stories weaving together a tapestry as textured as it is beautiful. Brent Robison's stories are reminiscent of Sherwood Anderson's 'Winesburg, Ohio' – stories of ordinary people caught in the crosshairs of circumstance, sometimes of their own making, sometimes not. All of them heroic in their honest struggle to find meaning and ultimately love. A gorgeous timeless collection about longing." **** Djelloul Marbrook, 2007 Wick Poetry Prize winner, says: "Subtlety ought to be on an endangered literary species list, but Brent Robison brilliantly makes the case for its essentiality in this exquisite collection of webbed stories. These stories argue that everything is a facet of the same jewel and we touch each other's lives in unfathomable ways. To read them is to heighten one's bond with strangers."
