THE WILD GRASS is the first collection of short stories by a writer I have been following online for a few years now: his flash fiction on Zoetrope, longer stories in Glimmer Train, and his insightful musings on the Literary Lab blog. This book brings together a collection of tales that have been nominated for the Pushcart Prize and won the author a coveted PEN Emerging Writers Fellowship in 2008.
His stories will take you to the mines of Brazil and the suburbs of Los Angeles; to law offices in Manhattan and fishing villages in Thailand. But no matter how far-flung the settings, Malasarn's stories are always grounded in an emotional honesty and filled with characters who are real and alive and compelling. A brilliant 1st collection from a writer to watch!
