Finalist, Short Stories (Adult Fiction)

The Widow’s Guide to Edible Mushrooms features twelve short stories, mostly set in the American West, in which people struggle to define themselves in border spaces. From stepmothers and childless women to young people aiming to push beyond the limits set for them, the characters in this collection seek to reconcile their sense of disenfranchisement with the communities and families they can’t or don’t want to abandon.
