The California of Where You Live might have sun, surf, and sand, but it’s more densely populated with cracking marriages, accidental pregnancies, and shitty jobs. Andrew Roe’s Californians face sharp points of change: Stay or go? Love or leave? Run or get stuck? Their choices, like our own, reveal life’s stark limitations and its wide-open vistas all at once.

Full of lush prose and unforgettable imagery, the stories in Where You Live shine an unforgiving yet shimmering light on longing, loss, and the everyday catastrophes of life.

About the Author:

Andrew Roe's first novel, The Miracle Girl (Algonquin Books), was a finalist for the LA Times Book Prize. His fiction has been published in Tin House, One Story, The Sun, Glimmer Train, Slice, The Cincinnati Review, and other publications, as well as the anthologies 24 Bar Blues (Press 53) and Where Love Is Found (Washington Square Press). His nonfiction has been published in the New York Times, San Francisco Chronicle, Salon.com, and elsewhere. He lives in Oceanside, California, with his wife and three children.

Review:

"Carver-esque...Roe writes assuredly, without condescension or sentimentality." Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"Where You Live explores, with rare nuance, the ways we disappoint one another and ourselves. Amidst rent-hikes, ambivalent pregnancies, dead-end jobs, middle-aged sex, impulsive kidnappings, and the frailties of blood, Roe's ordinary characters fumble through intimacy and emptiness with an extraordinary beauty that transcends their compromised lives." Gina Frangello, author of Every Kind of Wanting

"Here's a word I don’t throw around: Wise. Roe's stories are wise, both emotionally and cerebrally. And he uses this wisdom to spin readable, funny, touching yarns." Joshua Mohr, author of Sirens

"Andrew Roe's complex working-class characters and settings are a welcome blast of truth." J. Ryan Stradal, author of Kitchens of the Great Midwest
