A writer to watch out for

Argh! One of the downsides of publishing is that we’re always working far, far ahead. Right now I’m working on the copy for our summer 2009 catalog (yes, that would be a full year from now) and getting super excited about an upcoming author. Reading just the first page of one of her short stories completely took my breath away; the writing was so beautiful, so wise, so honest. Googling her turned up this piece about her wedding in the New York Times that also moved me. Remember this name: Lydia Peelle. She’s won an O.Henry, two Pushcart Prizes, and been featured in Best New American Voices (twice), and come summer 2009 she’s going to be big.
