June is a painter, a rare talent whose muses are visceral. Tree in Winter by Charlie Broderick, tells June’s story, where real meets surreal, anxiety meets solace and image meets language, drawing the reader into a gossamer web of truth and vision. It allows the former to fall away and the later to overwhelm its readers. It invites us into the fears and wants that compel us to create, showing us how one characters copes with that which cannot be understood about herself and the world around her.
