The Bone Spindle

Anne Sheldon’s heroines have lowered eyes and
seditious smiles. They are people of folklore and fairy
tales: Penelope, the Crane Maiden, the Fates. Her
heroes are outsiders in their own stories—
Rumpelstiltskin and Arachne’s father.
These story-poems and stories focus on the
work that women do with spinning wheel, spindle,
and knitting needles. They are accompanied by
evocative images of these instruments and the cloth
they yield.
