- 2015 INDIES Winner
- Honorable Mention, Short Stories (Adult Fiction)
David Langlinais weaves textured, evocative tales of family and outdoorsmanship, of the human struggle to find identity in an ever-changing landscape. Duck Thief and Other Stories--set mostly in Louisiana's southern parishes--is reminiscent of Ellen Gilchrist, with stories rich in the native culture and French patois. Pride, race, death, mental illness, infidelity--no subject is off-limits.
