In Fannys case these will range from contemporary fellow writers questioning ways and means in their art and all who find their enterprise of interest, to those who feel themselves confronted with deeply ingrained questions of religion, person, society, gender, politics, which almost anyone alive at this moment is trying to answer. Her most recently published novel, Indivisible, is a masterpiece of these determinants, of lives specific, of times and places particular. At the same time it is also a masterwork of the art - no one more actively employs the strategies and possibilities of language than does sheRobert Creeley.
