Andre DubusIt is a delight to find again, in Geoffrey Clark's What the Moon Said, the wonderful magic of the realistic short story; with beautiful and controlled prose, Clark has taken me deeply into the lives of his characters, so that I forgot I was reading stories, as I lived instead the lives he created.

What People are Saying About This
Susan DoddUniquely of its own time and place, unsparingly observed and unstintingly detailed, Geoffrey Clark's fiction transfixes, transports, and transforms. His landscapes are harsh and beautiful, his characters are as real, complex, and punishing as the worlds they inhabit. Each story in Schooling the Spirit is hard and dark as anthracite, and the final novella, 'Edge of Summer,' burns itself unmercifully into a reader's mind and heart.
