Stories of Maine

by Elaine Ford

Two-time TFP contributor, the late awarding-winning writer Elaine Ford has a posthumous story collection out from Islandport Press. Her story “Millennium Fever” (the Aloft Issue) is included in the collection.

This Time Might Be Different by award-winning writer Elaine Ford is a collection of stories in which deftly drawn characters contemplate difficult choices: a young girl might have coffee with a stranger; a guy might decide to rob the local laundromat; or a widow might get in the car and just keep driving. Underneath the commonplace–running into an old lover, a longstanding feud, an unspoken divorce–readers will find a trace of dark humor, a sinister underpinning, or a profound irony. Of Ford’s rural-Maine-set novel Monkey BayThe New York Times said: “Elaine Ford’s book is reminiscent of Andrew Wyeth’s stark paintings, which use the terrain of northern New England to explore a much larger emotional landscape.”
