Great American Desert

2019 INDIES Finalist
Finalist, Short Stories (Adult Fiction)

Water, its use and abuse, trickles through "Great American Desert," a story collection by Terese Svoboda that spans the misadventures of the prehistoric Clovis people to the wanderings of a forlorn couple around a pink pyramid in a sci-fi prairie. In her arresting and inimitable style, Svoboda’s delicate handling of the complex dynamics of family and self seeps into every sentence of these first-rate short stories about what we do to the world around us—and what it can do to us.
