  3. Hands down, Abha, prose as crisp and fragrant as the dried leaves in her hands, imagery, scent, coming to terms with memory (a favorite theme), so far my number one. And Joan, why are you fucking around and not writing more fiction. Yes, it’s hard and lonely, but so is everything else, so why not? As a group, the most consistent. (Yeah, I know, who asked you?)
