    Skip Horack (Author)
The sixteen short stories featured in Skip Horack's prize-winning debut collection paint a richly textured vision of the American South. Set in the Gulf Coast over the course of a year torn halfway by the arrival of Hurricane Katrina, these stories, filled with humor, restraint, and verve, follow the lives of an assembly of unforgettable characters. An exonerated ex-con who may not be entirely innocent, a rabbit farmer in mourning, and an earnest young mariner trying to start a new life with his wife--all are characters that populate the spirited cities and drowsy parishes in Horack's marvelous portrait of the South. 'A knockout winner' for guest judge Antonya Nelson, 'The Southern Cross 'marks the arrival of a standout new voice.
