Winner of the Katherine Anne Porter Prize in Short Fiction, 2004.
In the nine stories of Let's Do, various calamities strike ordinary Midwesterners, who cope with a mixture of good intentions and ineptitude. Balancing humor with painful clarity, author Rebecca Meacham pulls readers into the lives of characters who struggle with--and more often against--change.
