I loved her novel "Open", too. Great writing- well deserved award. I was a fan of hers way back when I read Hearts Larry Broke (short stories from burning rock). How fitting that the award be bestowed so close to the anniversary of the Ocean Ranger tragedy. I hope you sell millions of copies-Congratulations. For those of you who haven't yet read "February", get your hands on a copy NOW.

And a fine read it is, too. Her first book "Alligator" gets all the praise but for my money, I still say "February" is a better novel. It is packed full of raw, relatable emotion and visceral humanity. Great stuff.
