Ben Stroud’s Imaginative “The Moor”

Ben Stroud, author of “Eraser,” Issue 119, has a new story out in the Boston Review. “The Moor” addresses issues of assumption, identity, and bias, through a truly imaginative work of historical fiction. Set in the mid to late 19th century, “The Moor” follows the tragic, beautiful and, at times, ludicrous life of detective Jackson Hieronymus Burke. Stroud creates a piece which uplifts the mystery that is history. History and fiction can seem quite close at times and Stroud investigates this line astutely. Check out the latest Boston Review!
