These Waves of GirlsThis novella was winner of the 2001 Electronic Literature Award for fiction. Larry McCaffrey, who judged the contest, said of it: “Once inside the work itself, users encounter a series of writings – anecdotes, incidents, bits of story, and meditations – drawn from the memories and creative imagination of its playfully unreliable (and textually seductive) female protagonist at various key junctures of her youth (at age 4, age 10, 20, etc. )…. Fisher creates an interconnected web of branching, narrative possibilities that evoke not just the girlhood of a single protagonist but a broader perspective of girlhood(s).” See the Directory entry for more information about this piece.
