Winner of the Katherine Anne Porter Prize, this collection of short fiction is not what I was afraid it would be--earnest, semi-good, overworked fiction on similar subjects--the kind of thing that the University of North Texas would give a new writer 1000$ for.

Pretty darn good

Her writing intrigues me and she does what a good author does, she leaves you wanting more. She's unusual. You have to be mindful while reading because she's very aware of herself. I hope she has a novel in the abyss , heading towards the light.
