The Mermaid Quilt & Other Tales

by Beth Camp

This book of stories and poems brings us a covy of mermaids: A grieving artist sleeps under a mermaid quilt. A mermaid argues with a scholar. A pottery maker’s daughter befriends a mysterious stranger. A cowboy falls in love with the last mermaid. Two young girls discover a carved mermaid at a garage sale. A mermaid finds respite in a tree. And we discover what mermaids eat.

From the frozen Arctic to Mexico, Scotland, Russia, Brazil, and the United States, these stories and poems, sometimes funny, sometimes dark, shaped by myth from long ago, speak of love, revenge, and redemption. Written for adults, they unravel the heart songs of people who have been buffeted by life. They reinforce our yearning for something good and beautiful, and they reveal a fragile line between reality and magic.
