About the Author

DEBRA MONROE is the author The Source of Trouble, which won the 1989 Flannery O'Connor Award for Short Fiction. She is also the author of the story collection A Wild, Cold State; two novels, Newfangled and Shambles; and two memoirs, On the Outskirts of Normal and My Unsentimental Education. She is a "fierce" writer who presents "ever-hopeful lost souls with engaging humor and sympathy" (Kirkus Reviews), in prose that's "rangy, thoughtful, ambitious, and widely, wildly knowledgeable" (Washington Post), always "fine and funky, marbled with warmth and confusion, but not a hint of sentimentality" (Boston Globe). She lives in Austin, Texas, and teaches in the MFA program at Texas State University.
