The Spot

Thursday, June 24, 2010

David Means discusses The Spot: Stories, his second collection of short fiction. The stories are at once comically detached and emotionally affecting, expansive and concise, inventive and rooted in tradition, and have earned him comparisons to Flannery O’Connor, Alice Munro, Sherwood Anderson, Anton Chekhov, and Raymond Carver.
