Danielle Evans‘s debut story collection, Before You Suffocate Your Own Fool Self, received tons of critical acclaim when it was published just a couple months ago–from the New York Times, People, O: The Oprah Magazine, Time, Entertainment Weekly, and many more. Amy Hempel selected one of her stories, “Someone Ought to Tell Her There’s Nowhere to Go,” for our 25th anniversary edition of New Stories from the South, 2010. You’ll definitely want to read this one–Danielle Evans is sure to be a big literary star.
When a haunted Iraq veteran returns home, he tells a small lie with the best of intentions. But he doesn’t stop there, and his lying culminates in an act that could destroy his only meaningful relationship. –Ana Alvarez (Publishing Coordinator)
