Finalist, Humor (Adult Fiction)

In Gary Gildner's fourth collection of stories, composition teacher Wanda Delight, in heels long and sharp enough to pierce a rattler, loses her heart to prime example Timmy Sheean; WWII vet Sergeant Major George Prolly flees Piney Woods Rest in his wheelchair, leaving behind Miss Flambeau the exotic dancer; Kansas City lawyer Mary Beth Urquhart makes her way among her long-ago college poetry prof, truck driver Marvin Gaye, and the cologned-up, slippery father of a White Sox pitching phenom.
