The Lightness of Water and Other Stories (Paperback)
Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
The nine stories in The Lightness of Water & Other Stories (winner of the 2019 Press 53 Award for Short Fiction) are bound by a strong sense of place--Appalachia and the South--and prove that no matter where we go, there's no place far enough to leave home behind. The characters in these emotionally charged stories deal with loneliness, loss, greed, and guilt. They, like all of us, wrestle with the people, places, and memories they cling to, belong to, and run from, learning (sometimes too late), that these experiences remain with them forever.
