About the Author

Perry Glasser's stories have won the PEN Syndicated Fiction Prize three times and the Boston Fiction Festival twice. He is the author of DANGEROUS PLACES (BkMk Press, University of Missouri-Kansas City, 2009) and two prior fiction collections: Suspicious Origins, which won the Minnesota Voices Award (New Rivers Press) and Singing on the Titanic (University of Illinois Press). A former public high school English teacher in New York City, after years of being a magazine editor, he currently coordinates the Professional Writing program at Salem State College in Massachusetts.

More About the Author

Perry is the author of RIVERTON NOIR, the crime "novel of exaggeration and ribaldry. Big, vibrant, laugh-out-loud funny, fearless about sex and violence, which in Riverton can seem like the same thing."

DANGEROUS PLACES, a collection of short fiction, received the 2008 G.S. Sharat Chandra Prize from BkMk Press at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. In 2009 the book was named the recipient of the National "Best Books 2009" Award--Fiction & Literature: Short Story Fiction by USA Book News.

Two novellas were featured in NEXT STOP HOLLYWOOD, a collection of fiction from St. Martin's Press in 2007.

He has also published two prior collections of short fiction, SUSPICIOUS ORIGINS (St. Paul: New Rivers Press) and SINGING ON THE TITANIC (Urbana and Chicago: The University of Illinois Press), a book recorded by the Library of Congress for the blind.

His work has twice been read on National Public Radio's "The Sound of Writing" and has three times won P.E.N. Syndicated Fiction Awards. He has been named at fellow at Norman Mailer House, Ucross, Yaddo and the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, was a scholar at Bread Loaf, and in consecutive years was named a winner of the annual Boston Fiction Festival prize. His memoir, "Iowa Black Dirt," about being a single parent, won First Prize in a contest sponsored by The Good Men Foundation, and appears in that anthology.

In 2012 he was named a Fellow in Creative Nonfiction by the Massachusetts Arts Council.

1 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Monsieur le Peep on April 26, 2011
Format: Paperback
These are marvelous stories, each one as good as the next, each one stylistically unique, each one connected to the whole in a way that the process of reading the book from cover to cover--sequentially--adds up to something big and powerful and oddly affirmative, given the dark nature of a lot of the stories here.

I'm especially impressed by this: the stories here, for all the danger in them, are really about tenderness, about how people who have BEEN to dangerous places live their lives moving forward, a little more guarded maybe, but also with greater empathy and wisdom.

It's a must read, especially if you consider yourself a fan of the short story form.
