  • Under the Bridge

    By Anne Bishop     May 2019

    “Bishop’s skillful use of language and style, though subtle and unobtrusive, captured the very essence of being homeless, of living in poverty, devoid of hope. I was inside the story from beginning to end. I became informed without being preached at. I was brought inside the lives of those who are disenfranchised and lost, and I witnessed the human will to survive.” — Wendi Stewart, judge for the 2016 H.R. (Bill) Percy Novel Prize
