- Finalist, Short Stories (Adult Fiction)
No matter what their station in life, the characters in these wry, moving stories face moments in which the shock of being and becoming comes from within. Antonya Nelson writes "[the] author's capacious heart has room for a vast array of very different characters, each of whom receives the fully serious respect & sympathy in the telling of his or her story. In this way, every reader can find 'me' here, not to mention truth."
