Mrs. Sartoris

Mrs. Sartoris

Alfred A. Knopf Publishers, New York, New York, 2003

Description

This is a short, fierce story about a modern-day Madame Bovary. Oote Boe, a fantastic photographer with a knack for making everyday objects remarkable, took this beautiful photograph. When paired with the title, the match suddenly becomes a woman, and in the case of Margaret Sartoris, a woman who quite literally burns out by the end of the novel.

Juror Notes

“Simple, clean, elegant. What is this about, I want to know. A great job of captivating the reader without giving away anything.” Archie Ferguson
