"In his debut story collection, set mostly in Northern California, Jesse Shepard proves tough, canny, wildly inventive."-Seattle Times
In the tradition of Sherwood Anderson and Flannery O'Connor, Jubilee King offers spare and deft navigations of the distance between people, between words, between moments. Jesse Shepard finds evidence of the grotesque in the everyday, the meaningful in the mundane. From a series of small but momentous occurrences, he has spun to a spirited and assured debut.
