ThornBook - 2014
Fiction. "The seductive beauty of these subtle, troubling fictions reflect their author's dreamy, voice-drenched visions of underdog lives," writes Al Young, who selected THORN as the winner of the G.S. Sharat Chandra Prize for Short fiction, in his foreword to this lush collection of short stories by Evan Morgan Williams. These stories portray hardships of characters who come from a variety of backgrounds, especially Native Americans and others from the Pacific Coast. With his vivid descriptions of these characters and their experiences, Williams explores their psyches and personal struggles, but common themes tie these stories together in ways that invite readers to see their own struggles and relationships in new ways.
