“These stories are particularly poignant for anyone who grew up gay in America’s desolate places, but Corcoran speaks eloquently to all facets of the human condition.”
—Kirkus Review

Jonathan Corcoran grew up in rural West Virginia inspiring the stories of the collection. He was a finalist for the Flannery O’Connor Award in short fiction and semi-finalist for the St. Lawrence Book Award.

Tayari Jones is the author of The Silver Sparrow, The Untelling, and Leaving Atlanta and teaches creative writing at Rutgers University – Newark.
