Winner of the Grace Paley Prize in Short Fiction In Pins and Needles, Karen Brown explores the dynamics of love and longing between mother and child, husband and wife, close friends, and virtual strangers, often peeling back the facade of a seemingly stable suburban life to reveal the secrets and transgressions that even good people can be guilty of. In “She Fell to Her Knees,” Nell inherits the neglected house in which her mother died years before, and begins an affair with the neighbor. The narrator of “Apparitions,” who has recently returned the blind grandson she was raising to the care of his mother, invites a confused young man into her home. In “The Ropewalk,” a bartender haunted by her abandonment of her own child aids a customer in a struggle for custody of her daughters. A pregnant teenager in “Unction” comes to accept the reality of her situation while working a summer job in a bookbinding shop. Annie, the young mother with a tragic past in “Pins and Needles,” leaves her infant daughter to go on an errand in a snowstorm, and picks up a boy she doesn't know. Evocative, sexy, and haunting, these are stories that readers won't soon forget.

A COMPELLING SAGA SET IN WALES. A young woman's determination to keep the one person she loves best in the world Twins Tanwen and Donna Evans are as different as chalk and cheese. Tanwen is pretty, pert, a bubbly extrovert but very selfish and as slim and sharp as a needle. Donna is plain, placid and shy, although very warm-hearted and as sturdy and useful as a pin. In 1924, when the girls are fourteen, their mother Gwyneth insists both become apprentices at The Cardiff Drapers, where she once worked. Her dressmaking pays little and the girls' wages will help bring more money in. Tanwen is in great demand when she becomes the store model, but much to both girls' dismay, Gwyneth insists Donna goes along with her sister when she has a date. Donna ends up playing gooseberry or in the company of a boy she doesn't like - until she meets tall, handsome Dylan Wallis and falls in love. But Tanwen sets her heart on Dylan with disastrous consequences for them all...

PINS, TICKLES AND THORNS is a real story written by a troubled man in great mental pain. The mental pain becomes physical pain when he tries to put on paper what that pain is...what caused that pain and, most of all, why. The book reveals stories about cheating wives and stupid husbands and what they have to do with the writer's pain. The locations are worldwide showing that these problems are not assigned to any one location but are universal. The writing style changes, sometimes abrubtly, depending on the mental anguish of the writer at the time. Telling a nice love story of his first real love is written tenderly and softly. As he begins to recognize possible causes of this pain the writing may be bitter, angry, sad and sometimes apologetic. This book was not intended to be a "book," it was intended to solve the writer's problem. Make that, "problems." How many affairs does it take to turn a seemingly sexually satisfied man into a "porcupine turned inside out"? Occasionally some comments are in italics. The writer recognizes that some of his comments are not going to be believed by some readers, especially older women. The comments in italics are an attempt to let readers know that his comments are not intended to make the reader think what he does and says is "normal," they were normal for this writer. The writer's pain is revealed in the changes in writing style. A lot of dots, double spacing on some pages, and abrupt endings of some chapters are only expressions of his pain, his words show him trying to find the answers to his painful questions. Of course all names and places have been changed to protect the guilty.
