Hebridean Love Song with Lobster

After months of correspondence preceding the start of her anthropological fieldwork in Scotland for her doctorate, Sue Parman finally journeys to Inverness where she meets Robert J. Storey, the gatekeeper to research in the Highlands and Islands, in an unusual encounter involving a lobster (published in Lumina 2011).

“Both a skilled fiction writer and a respected anthropologist, Sue Parman is an astute observer of humankind in all its brave, sad and prideful folly. Parman’s richly textured prose is often dark, sometimes eerie, and always full of wry compassion.”
–Kinney Littlefield, Journalist and Writer
