Sheila Nickerson's latest work, Blackbird Flying, defies categories. Grounded in the surprising details of family memoir, it expands to an exploration of mystery, "where solid is not solid and the shore is never certain," and lament unfurls to celebration. More
Nickerson watches and records, searching not only for birds, but also for apparitions and enlightenment, for a deeper understanding of life's twists and turns, its disappointments and betrayals. The shiny bits she collects gleam and shine. The breadth of her attention and knowledge is dazzling.
