Only twenty-eight years old, Michaely Byers has already earned literary distinction with stories chosen for The Best American Short Stories and the O. Henry Awards. His debut collection tells graceful tales of achingly unresolved lives on the Pacific Northwest coast. Here are ferry workers, carpenters, park rangers, adolescents leaving home and retirees coming home again. Crab factories, cranberry bogs, the fog-shrouded shore, the Seattle skyline—these are the setting for quiet but astonishing emotional epiphanies. Psychologically complex and glowing with warmth, these stories announce the arrival of a radiant new talent.
