"Straightforward prose that performs plenty of emotional and foreshadowing work, tight, convincing dialogue, and an eye for apt metaphors... As strong as anything in the Raymond Carver playbook." - Washington City Paper
This collection invites you into the lives of characters caught in an increasingly intertwined world, close to home and abroad. It’s a tour of the human experience from San Antonio to Bangkok, Scotland to West Africa. Exploring a human calculus of love, betrayal, and fantasy, this moving collection makes those dramas vivid with humor and life. Success: Stories was a finalist for the 12th annual Library of Virginia Literary Awards and the 2008 winner of the Washington Writers' Publishing House fiction prize.
