Fiction. Winner of the G. S. Sharat Chandra Prize for Short Fiction, selected by Stuart Dybek. Benaron's stories cover a remarkable range of themes and conflicts, including family relationships, genocide in Rwanda and Europe, the American Jewish experience, women's experience in traditionally male fields, and such challenges as mental illness and physical mortality. Yet beyond its deft depictions of conflict, Benaron's stories offer the reader a wide range of hope, humor, pathos, and literary transformation. "Naomi Benaron is fearless. Her work shines a light into the darkest corners of human existence and, in doing so, helps us both bear witness to atrocity and find hope and healing"--Gayle Brandeis.
