From the publisher, Press 53, led by the wonderful Kevin Morgan Watson.
Welcome, Anybody, the debut short story collection by Jen McConnell will ship early February and we are taking pre-orders now for signed copies.
Tara Ison, author of The List, says, “The luminous, compelling stories of Welcome, Anybody capture our yearning for connection; McConnell illuminates those rare moments in life we find both fleeting and transformative with the eye of a master jeweler.”
Lewis Buzbee, author of The Yellow-Lighted Bookshop, says, “The characters in these stories stand absolutely still in the middle of their lives while the world spins around them, chaotically and often dangerously. There is an intensity of vision here—both riveting and haunting—that will remind you of Carver’s stories, but the territory McConnell has staked out is unquestionably her own.”
“Welcome, Anybody exquisitely distills the emotional landscape of ordinary people. The life in these stories is remarkable. A true gem of a collection from a writer with real heart.” – Rebecca Rasmussen, author of The Bird Sisters
