About this title


A collection of short stories that are finger on the pulse of our individual and collective secrets, exploring the cost of hiding them or trying to share them. Some, like the protagonists in "It's Usually This Dark By Now" and "A Crime of Opportunity," can't afford the price tag on those secrets. Others, like the history-haunted veteran in "This Time Comes From That Time" or the teenage narrator in "Mountain," swallow them whole. A few, like the husband and wife in "Augmented Finality" and the three couples in "Ten Things You Don't Know About Me," make uneasy peace with those secrets. Rich characters and a literary style make this a go-to for lovers of short fiction.

His short stories have won awards from the South Carolina Fiction Project, the Piccolo Spoleto Fiction Open, and the Pushcart Prize.
