MEDIA REVIEWS
Rick Bragg author of All Over but the Shoutin' and Ava's Man With Fierce, Barbara Robinette Moss proves that the lives of real people will carry a book, a good book, and her writing, as always, has grit and beauty and bottom.
Connie May Fowler author of When Katie Wakes and Before Women Had Wings Fierce is an unforgettable memoir brimming with raw beauty. Barbara Robinette Moss has transcended a hellish past and writes about her journey with unwavering grace, strength, and wisdom.
Silas House author of Clay's Quilt and The Coal Tattoo A powerful and beautiful meditation on addiction and survival, on the healing power of art, friendship, and family. Moss lets her story unfold in economical, poetic chapters that hum with the power of real life. Never sentimental but always life-affirming, Fierce is an amazing look at one single mother's fight to make the best life she can for her and her son.
Cassandra King author of The Sunday Wife Fierce is such a remarkable and beautiful book. I couldn't imagine loving it more than Change Me into Zeus's Daughter, but I did.
Publisher's Weekly Moss does what you'd expect form a visual artist: she paints pictures with her words. As with her first memoir, she uses the painful stuff of her life and turns it into vhilling, visceral imagery. She mercilessly braids the gruesome beauty of images like this with a hopeful message: survive.
Elle Heartbreaking, rough, raw. Fierce is a plainspoken memoir about Moss's struggle to make a life as a single mother and the daughter of an alcoholic. Fierce captures the author's journey from being a victim of chance to becoming a fighter for happiness.
