(Here’s a review from The Review Review that says, “The third place prize in fiction went to A. Wolfe for ‘The Wolf Mother.’ This heartbreaking story of Maggie, a young working class mother abandoned by her lover, shows what she does to survive. Again, there are many point of view switches between fragments. The plot is intertwined with encyclopedic information about the wolf. We learn about mythical stories of children raised by wolves, wolf packs, mating behavior and the realities of childrearing in the wild. ‘Wolves very seldom leave the pack, but at least one in every family will go.’ This was a disturbing story about abandonment on many levels.”)
