Poetry. Fiction. Thalia Field says, "Allison Carter writes the small and indelible installments of domestic life; what fits in a pocket, a post-it, just below the radar. In lovely prose, she challenges us to imagine the bigger picture just outside the frame. [...] There is something both eerie and real about this microscopic world, the way one feels the first time you realize that ants have complex lives. What? That's us? Yes. In this great debut book."A FIXED, FORMAL ARRANGEMENT is published as part of the TrenchArt Tracer series, with an introduction by Danielle Dutton and visual art by Susan Simpson and Ken Ehlich.
