Amazing debut by an amazing writer
February 1, 2011
I first met Patty McNair in my first graduate-level fiction course in 2003, and though her teaching has stayed with me ever since, her writing is magnificently inspiring. She’s got a new website up for her debut collection of stories, The Temple of Air, which I had the pleasure of copy editing. Usually, reading manuscripts feels like work on some level, but not this one. It’s amazing and touching and painful and everything a good book should be.
So take a minute, check out her page at http://patriciaannmcnair.com and, if you’re feeling adventurous, take a look at the interview I did with her for the reader’s guide. That one’s at http://bit.ly/errgTK.
