Jim Shepard on You Think That’s Bad

Jim Shepard tells us about his wildly diverse collection of observant stories, You Think That’s Bad: Stories. His writing shows the vastness of human experience—from the fringes and lonely pinnacles to the hopelessly mediocre and desperately below average—with brilliant scientists, reluctant soldiers, workaholic artists, female explorers, depraved murderers, and deluded losers.
