About the Book

In powerfully evocative settings that range from the American Southwest to the islands of the South Pacific, G.W. Hawkes displays an unerring eye for detail as he maps the intricate geometry of the human heart.


G.W. Hawkes is Assistant Professor of English at Lycoming College in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. His stories have appeared in a number of magazines, including Atlantic Monthly, GQ, and Missouri Review.


"A debut volume--13 stories, mostly about off-kilter people haunted by the damaged world that surrounds them--that's notable for its supple, original style, and especially for dialogue that's convincing and various. . . . An impressive first collection. Hawkes ranges through space and delivers an original take on the world in a voice that's compelling."--Kirkus Reviews
