Welcome to Fruitful Place/Perishing World. My name's Suzanne Gardinier, & I'm a writer who lives in Manhattan. This site gathers together some of what I'm watching & listening to, & some of what I've made & am making.
I'd like to thank Christine Lee, skilled, patient, resourceful web designer [www.christinesuewonlee.com] & able shepherd through the mysteries; I'd also like to thank Michelle Cliff, whose words form the site's title, words that have stayed in my head from the moment I first read them.
Lately I live in Havana between August and December, where my internet access is much less ample & frequent; I may not post anything here until I get back to New York, but there should be plenty to keep you busy between now & then. Making this was like making not a book but a house, with many rooms, with voices & music in them; my envy of architects & carpenters & filmmakers & musicians has been soothed a little by these happy amateur attempts. Hope you find something useful here. Holler back.
