I'm happy to share the news that my collection of short stories, Ms. Yamada's Toaster, has been named a finalist for the Bakeless Literary Prize, sponsored by the Bread Loaf Writers' Conference. This means that me and nine other people have until May to chew off our fingernails while Robert Boswell reads our books and picks a winner. The prize includes publication with Graywolf Press, makers of truly gorgeous books, and a fellowship to Bread Loaf. Fingers and toes crossed!
