Author Info
Jess Walter
Jess Walter has written for the "Spokane Review". His work has won dozens of regional and national awards, and his coverage of the Randy Weaver story helped earn his paper a place as a Pulitzer Prize finalist.
"Although he is best known as a novelist ("The Zero," "Beautiful Ruins," "Citizen Vince") who writes of knockabout characters in dead-end situations, Mr. Walter brings that outlook to short-story writing easily, and with a vengeance. Nobody in this collection's 13 pieces can be described as headed for anything but trouble....The short form has allowed Mr. Walter to assemble his most bleakly funny, hard-edge book in years."
"Fortunately, Walter is a bighearted man who excels at writing about other bighearted, if broken, men. That generosity of spirit, coupled with Walter's seeming inability to look away from the messy bits, elevates these stories from dirges to symphonies."
