Synopsis: The eleven stories in Gerry Wilson's debut collection, Crosscurrents and Other Stories, span three generations of women-wives, mothers, daughters, sisters, friends. Starkly real yet sometimes mystical, these stories portray women who persevere in the midst of betrayal, loss, and heartbreak. Crosscurrents and Other Stories resonates with the hard truths of women's lives.

From the Back Cover: "Gerry Wilson's stories are about the essential tugs between desires: for safety or risk; for adventure or comfort; for sanctioned action or the indubitably un. Her characters are in mortal combat, most often with themselves. This is a very exciting and compelling collection of stories; I loved reading it." -- Antonya Nelson, author of Funny Once: Stories

"What electric, wild passages, these stories by Gerry Wilson! I always wondered what lurked behind the pink fence at the Wild Animal Park. How I longed for seating in that tattered, empty Italian restaurant with its ancient candles and bombastic opera. And the women, the men here, their flaws, their loves, their excruciating valences, their delicate choices. Eleven circuits crackling with life await you." -- Steve Yates, author of the Juniper Prize-winning Some Kinds of Love: Stories

"Gerry Wilson's vivid debut collection tackles a vast array of human experiences: death, birth, love, abuse, parenting, infidelity, youth, and aging. Rich with metaphor and dark symbolism, Crosscurrents shows women fighting the undertow of their tragedies with wisdom and sincerity." -- Erica Krouse, author of Contenders

"What a dazzling debut collection. Gerry Wilson's spare, lucid prose and inventive story design illuminate the secret truth that, even within the loops and tangles of relationships and family, all of us are strays, wild, fragile, and hungry. These stories explore losses and the discoveries loss impels, yet Crosscurrents is, above all, about connection--never easy, often found where least expected, but giving life surprising grace. --Lynne Barrett, author of Magpies
