In the latest Black and White title from Outrider Press—a rich collection of poetry, fiction, memoirs, and essays—award-winning authors focus on water as a source of beauty and devastation, emotion and reason, practicality and abandon. Visions of water as a conduit for solitude give way to torrents of expression as a woman’s stroll through summer rain shifts from carefree to threatening; a New Yorker’s dream of liberation yields to a frantic, then lonely journey across a lake, and a young child staying at her neighbor’s house confronts a battering storm. Other pieces focus on dialogues between the physical and figurative, particularly when a single mother, inexperienced in rafting, follows her boyfriend into the headwaters of Alaska. One tale follows a venture-capitalist associate as he takes indoor swimming lessons and uncovers an unusual connection between his instructor and his boss. Another documents the end of a relationship in echoes across a lake. Editor Scott offers a balanced progression of the elements found in both water’s calm and its disorder.
