Southern Gothic tropes haunt Kathryn Harrison. It’s a long-tangled thread running through her family—one she has incessantly tried to make straight. But in the course of her own life, the questions central to the genre are anything but fictive. They’re eternal questions about addiction, illness, loss, and death; questions about where her brother is sleeping tonight, if he’s relapsed, how she’ll explain this all to her nephew, or what the world would look like if her mom’s health goes South again. And somewhere beneath that constellation of contingency, she asks where she might find herself when the stars fall.
-Michael Adno, "Blue-Stained Walls" at Hawkins Court
