Elizabeth Genovise lives near Knoxville and sets most of these nine stories in rural East Tennessee. She teaches both college and community classes and is a writing coach. “Elizabeth Genovise is a first-rate story writer, plain and simple, but she’s at her best when her clear-eyed sense of place is blended with richly imagined characters to create emotional landscapes of remarkable depth. Her women, like all good women, are wise and strong, but what’s truly startling is how well she knows her men, the good of us and the bad and everything in between.”—Michael Knight.
