About this title

Synopsis:

The Convalescent is the story of a small, bearded man selling meat out of a bus parked next to a stream in suburban Virginia . . . and also, somehow, the story of 10,000 years of Hungarian history. Jessica Anthony, the inaugural winner of the Amanda Davis Highwire Fiction Award, makes an unforgettable debut with an unforgettable hero: Rovar Ákos Pfliegman — unlikely bandit, unloved lover, and historian of the unimportant.

About the Author:

Jessica Anthony's writing has appeared in Best American Nonrequired Reading, McSweeney's, Best New American Voices, New American Writing, and Mid-American Review, among others. She lives in Portland, ME.
