Overview

The Land of Milk and Honey: A Big Little Book by Fielding Dawson

Fiction."Mr. Dawson hs a rare gift for capturing extremely subtle nuances of .feelings that hover.at the verge of consciousness, are mysterious and nonverbal" - Edmund Fuller, The Wall Street Journal. "Fielding Dawson's stories are sad, because the world is sad. But they are also full of life which makes them plentiful and rich, like the stories old timers used to tell when old timers still told stories. One feels also that they are true, without being indulgent or merely factual. Their apparent simplicity is, however, deceiving. Dawson is a master stylist" - Andrei Codrescu, The Baltimore Sun.
