Ohio State University Prize in Short Fiction

Uncategorized, April 23rd, 2013

Delighted to announce that my short story collection, Hibernate, won the 2013 Ohio State University Prize in Short Fiction!  

Hibernate: Stories will be published by OSU Press in 2014.

About the book:

In this collection of stories — winner of the 2013 Ohio State University Prize for Short Fiction and finalist for the 2011 Flannery O’Connor Award in Short Fiction — characters slowly wake to hard choices. A Sudanese immigrant tries to start a life with his girlfriend in the United States, only to find himself pulled toward his mother’s past. A group of American tourists visits an Indian Pueblo and realizes their tour guide isn’t at all who they expected. Their ship moored on the ice, a captain and his men cling to the company of narwhals and Eskimos. Published separately in numerous literary journals, these stories form a dazzling landscape of the strange and joyful.
