Ploughshares featured my short story "Fiddlebacks" on their blog The Best Short Story I Read in a Lit Mag This Week. Ross McMeekin says, "The games children play can tell us a lot about ourselves as human beings, regardless of whether we attribute the inspiration behind them more to nature or nurture. In 'Fiddlebacks' (New South), Kimberly King Parsons makes good use of the games played by three siblings, exploring what they reveal about the hidden fears and desires of the young."
