Overview


Fiction. The nine stories in the debut collection, WOLF NOTE, thrust the reader into diverse worlds from San Francisco in the 1940s to the tangled imagination of a delusional adolescent in a contemporary mental ward, introducing characters with compassion, humor, and nuanced psychological insight. The stories capture moments in women's lives as they lose themselves-and find themselves-in love, friendship, music, and madness. An injured ballerina turns to her grandmother's Kodak camera and its 35 millimeter film, which sounds to her "like artillery ammunition," when she can no longer dance. In the title story, the narrator ponders the concept that "certain weaknesses run in families," and she embraces the cello as her brother had clung his violin. "Short story writing is a difficult and demanding craft, and Libby Jacobs clearly has mastered it. Light a fire, curl up, and get set to immerse yourself in the moods and power of WOLF NOTE"-Michael Palmer, author of eleven New York Times Bestsellers, including The Society, Fatal, and The Patient.
