Make time for ‘Possibilities’
By Steven Uhles, Columnist
It’s an approach that works for a variety of reasons. The most obvious is it is the sort of parent’s story that is relatable. We all worry about our children. We all fear moments of helplessness. But it also works as a piece of literature, because Turner Simkins is a writer of rare gifts and intelligence andPossibilities is dependent on not only his and his family’s experiences, but his facility with words as well.
As a writer, Simkins understands that often less is, in fact, more. He saves detailed description and deep reflection for moments when they truly count. His disciplined and patient approach controls the ebb and flow of the story, bringing the reader close at the most important moments while keeping the chronology moving forward.
The story Simkins spins – the story that shaped the reality of his, his son’s and his family and friends’ lives – isn’t one I would wish on anyone. It is both harrowing and uplifting. The book that came of it however – a book that never panders or plods – is one that I would recommend to all.
