Felicity Savage’s writing works on multiple levels of literary understanding. On the surface, this is an arresting tale of an intervention – an attempt to move a promising young artist off her path towards self-destruction.
At the same time, I sense deeper levels of meaning. At some level, a lot of the drama and existential frustration in this story – and in life – revolves around language. More than once, the narrator bumps into these linguistic walls that create walls in the mind that are almost impossible to see before they are hit.
Sharp, poignant, and rich with meaning, this is a gem of a short story for those who like intelligent literature with an edge.

Felicity Savage is an intelligent writer. That was my first thought on reading The Spirit of Harlem. But then I realized that Ms. Savage didn't just tell an intelligent story. She had drawn all my emotions into the story, and I was there, not just watching events unfold, but participating silently like Patrick Swayze in Ghost. The characters couldn't hear me of course, but they didn't need to since Ms. Savage has excellent control of language, letting us know that language is so very important in the success of relationships. I wanted to shout across the dinner table, "Why don't you talk about the real problem?" But I just had to smile because Ms. Savage had already done that with this excellent story.
