Water Street by Crystal E. Wilkinson
Water Street, Wilkinson’s follow-up to Blackberries, Blackberries, once again sets the reader right in the middle of
Kentucky culture. Focusing her short stories on fictional inhabitants of Water Street creates a novel-like feel in the character studies exploring the interconnectedness of the characters of Water Street. Wilkinson’s stories examine human experience without being preachy. Wilkinson again demonstrates the challenges and joys of the human experience through her exquisite use of vernacular, description, setting and character.
