SUCCESS: STORIES is the 2008 winner of the Washington Writers' Publishing House fiction prize. These stories probe the lives of people caught in an increasingly intertwined world, close to home and abroad. Exploring a human calculus of love, betrayal, and fantasy, this moving collection makes those dramas vivid. «Gritty dialogue, lean prose, layered plotting, and an eye for the perfect detail make these stories a satisfying and engaging read»--Susan Muaddi Darraj. «A book of fine stories»--Richard Bausch.
