5 LittleAuthor: Michael Carroll

From Key West to Maine, Carroll’s debut collection of stories depicts the lives of characters who are no longer provincial but are not yet cosmopolitan. These women and their gay male friends are “B-listers” of a new, ironic, media-soaked culture. They live in a rich but increasingly divided America, a weirdly paradoxical country increasingly accepting of gay marriage but still marked by prejudice, religious strictures, and swaths of poverty and hopelessness. Carroll show us people stunned by the shock of the now, who have forgotten their pasts and can’t envision their a future. University of Wisconsin Press (uwpress.wisc.edu.).—Suzie Lynde
