Bynum's lush, poetic imagery is full of vivid, sensuous details one can almost smell, taste, and feel.""--The Boston Globe" PRAISE FOR"MADELEINE IS SLEEPING" "A hallucinogenic fairy tale that veers between the clinical clarity of hard fact and a surreal mysticism . . .

Bob Brink, author, Breaking Out, a novel
But what I so greatly appreciated was how the stories all grow in power together. The main character's descriptions of her father - from the shadow scenes in "Accomplice," to the Dracula laugh in "Satellite," to her nightmares of his death in "Sandman," were truly moving. He is just one of the many chords that stream through the work that, at its close, creates a portrait of a young woman who wants to move forward with her life. Yet, she is cursed and blessed with extraordinarily mature powers of reflection.
