News: Jesse Goolsby selected for Best Small Fictions

I reviewed Jesse’s debut novel a while back, and one of the things that struck me about the book was his ability to write hard-hitting prose with ruthless efficiency. All killer, no filler.

Jesse is keeping up the tradition, and was recently selected for the Best Small Fictions 2017 anthology. The original story published in Pleiades, but you can view a snippet and and an interview about it here. Congratulations, Jesse!

Book Review: “I’d Walk With My Friends If I Could Find Them” by Jesse Goolsby

Tom Ricks over at Foreign Policy was kind enough to publish my book review of USAFA graduate and all-around fantastic writer Jesse Goolsby’s debut novel. It’s a stunning, heartbreaking work that I can’t recommend enough. Especially if you want to read about war in a different way, one in which war recedes behind character-driven writing.
