Praise for Ink:
“…Ink is thoughtful and meandering, but also precise and sharp. Observations about the existential meaning of everyday objects, such as the mechanics of a typewriter and the production of ink, are woven into the narrator’s alter ego as she struggles with the craft of writing and with the story of Marina, Sylvia, and the tapes.”—Erika Harlitz Kern, Foreword Reviews
“…Woodward asks us to consider the fact that when we encounter a book, we encounter a thing, and when we interact with language, we are interacting with a substance. With this philosophy at its core, Woodward does a dazzling thing.” —Jacob Pascoe, The Collidescope
