The Man Back There, David Crouse
Crouse crawls inside the heads of a dozen male protagonists and tells us how they think. In this deceptively quiet collection, the truth is something that simmers up through what is not said.
David Crouse is author of the collection, Copy Cats, awarded The Flannery O'Connor Award for Short Fiction in 2005. His short stories have appeared in such magazines as Quarterly West and The Greensboro Review, while his comic book writing is anthologized in The Dark Horse Book of the Dead. He teaches in The University of Alaska-Fairbanks MFA Program.
