About the Author
David Harris Ebenbach's short fiction has been published in numerous literary magazines including Denver Quarterly, Beloit Fiction Journal, and Crazyhorse. His poetry has appeared in Phoebe, Stickman Review, and Arbutus, among other publications..
Ebenbach displays real affection for his characters, empathetically reserving judgment even as they wrestle with, and at times succumb to, self-destructive demons . . . Ebenbach's adept, skillful stories may inspire readers to rethink and perhaps reinvent traditions of their own.-- " The Jewish Week"
Ebenbach captures the anxious musings of characters in transition in this debut collection . . . [He] does a fine job of exploring his characters' longing for connection.-- "Publishers Weekly"
Even as Ebenbach's stories crackle with emotional energy, his language is simple, pared-down, focusing on the minutiae. His technique is honest. Ebenbach understands the art of restraint and his sense of precision is so sharply honed it draws blood. . . .A great book of stories. The kind that makes you believe in the people on the page so fully that you feel the heat of them in your fingers.-- "Capital Times, Madison, WI"
In Between Camelots, David Ebenbach fearlessly treads onto the terrain of American loneliness with clear-eyed precision and perfect pitch. Whether they're about one-night stands or newly shattered hearts, struggling young marriages or two gay men simply trying to connect, these are stories that, above all, tell the truth. They are rendered with an honesty and compassion that can make you sit up and gasp.-- "Joan Leegant, author of An Hour in Paradise"
In these stories, David Harris Ebenbach creates a world so carefully observed and nuanced that each moment seems capable of changing everything.-- "Suzanne Greenberg, author of Speed-Walk and Other Stories"
These stories of searching young Americans are intimate and sharply detailed, sometimes hopeful, often sad, with just a taste of the strange. Between Camelots is about the scars of first losses, and the need to carry on. David Harris Ebenbach is always in full command, leading the reader moment-by-moment through his people's dis- and missed connections, ultimately leaving us alone with them at the quiet end of the night.-- "Stewart O'Nan"
