SURRY — Caroline Sulzer’s first published novel, “In the Disappearing Water,” is winning high praise from readers who hail its lyrical prose and multilayered thematic content.

“I’ve just finished reading [‘In the Disappearing Water’] and was profoundly moved — politically and personally,” Brooksville artist Rob Shetterly said. “I don’t think I’ve read such good writing about the complexity and nuance of emotions since reading the early stories of Jane Smiley.”

In telling the story of two women who are going through a critical year in their lives, Sulzer provides a meditation on loss, longing, family and friendship. Her lyricism and ability to create believable characters allows readers to effortlessly contemplate the forms of violence that permeate humanity, violence that is often readily dismissed or made invisible by society.
