Browder's second collection is characterized by the wide range of narrative voices she brings forth--a bilingual Hispanic social worker, an immigrant Russian Jewish chemical engineer, a young Japanese immigrant, to an American woman living in Japan.
Praise for Secret Lives
"The writer's sensibility hovering over these diverse stories is large enough to contain multitudes; compassionate without being sentimental; wry and detached enough not to take itself too seriously; inclusive of diversity without celebrating diversity for its own sake; unafraid of risking substance, yet committed to nuance and mystery." --Allen Wier
