Winner of Pushcart's fourteenth annual Editors' Book Award for books of enduring literary worth, here is a fiction collection from a new voice that is like no other.

These seven tales cover a wide range from a boyhood in Buffalo to a failed interracial affair, to thoughts about a man lying on a freeway divider. Fred Pfeil mixes aesthetic and political passions in a style that is all his own. His work has been recognized by many journals, including Witness, Fiction International, and TriQuarterly.
