Awards and Recognition

  • "When a poet writes in English as a second language, we get a more precise understanding of words. This is a terrific portrait, paying tribute to Manhattan, and Fruner nails the city with clear, fresh perceptions that work like silk on the page. She owns her words with personality and originality in this high-caliber collection." — Poet Laureate Grace Cavalieri on "Bitter Bites from Sugar Hills," published in the Washington Independent Review of Books, May 2019.
  • "Written in dynamic, intimate clipped prose, 'L'istante largo' takes the reader into a buoyant youthful world where insights and discovery work the kind of brilliance we haven't witnessed in today's prose. Fruner is a magician of the word." - André Aciman, author of "Call Me By Your Name" and "Find Me"
  • "L'istante largo" has been shortlisted for the Severino Cesari Prize 2021, which will be awarded during Umbrialibri Festival, October 8-10, 2021.
