Free sample

Winner of the Flannery O'Connor Award for Short Fiction. Filled with sharp dialogue, engaging characters, and offbeat detail, the twelve stories collected in The Melancholy of Departure describe an outsider's world of longing, disillusion, and survival, where hope is found in unexpected places and understanding comes from unlikely sources. Fully aware of the dangers that await us all — loneliness, commitment, heartbreak, love — the men and women in this collection call out to us from the fringes of society; they are prophets whose messages fall on uninterested ears.
