Elisabeth Benjamin


Excerpt from The Houses

House for Z

On the porch, a new bee landed on one half of the halved pear, which wept bright juice into a white saucer. The woman chose this occupied half, then slowly, carefully ate around the bee. But when it left, she devoured the fruit with the severity of a flame.

She is quickly everything.

Elisabeth Benjamin lives on the coast of Maine's Cobscook Bay, where the icy waters appear to boil.
