Every single one of the stories in Neil Connelly's new collection is expertly crafted vividly detailed, sharply plotted, perfectly paced, peopled with a host of surprising and sympathetic characters and you know from the first page that you're in the hands of a versatile and original talent, a ranging imagination. There is real darkness in these stories, real sorrow and anger and regret in the hearts of these characters, but there s also plenty of humor and no small amount of hope and more wisdom than one writer should be asked to bear. --Michael Knight, author of The Typist
This delightful collection testifies to the transformative power in subtle redemption. Clever, discerning, finely-wrought, the stories here probe brokenness and healing, straying and stumbling in characters and worlds reminiscent of Raymond Carver. Here is what it means to come through something, here is what it means to find a lit room at the end of a dark corridor. --Lisa Graley, author of The Current That Carries, winner of the Flannery O'Connor Award for Short Fiction
About the Author
Neil Connelly talked his way into the MFA Program at McNeese State University, where he studied with Pulitzer Prize winner Robert Olen Butler alongside future Pulitzer Prize winner Adam Johnson. He was out of his league from day one. After graduation and a stint at Cape Fear Community College, he returned to McNeese as a professor and eventually became director of the graduate program. These days he teaches writing at Shippensburg University in his home state of Pennsylvania, where he lives with his wife, their two sons, and a dog named Muffin. In the Wake of Our Vows is his sixth book, following novels with Arthur A. Levine, LSU Press, and Simon & Schuster.
