How is a woman in her thirties, HIV-positive and fresh out of rehab, supposed to find love and work in contemporary, urban America? Emily Carter’s critically acclaimed debut traces Glory’s journey from her addictions to heroin and alcohol in New York to her rebirth in Minnesota’s recovery community. Glory Goes and Gets Some is a streetwise and sardonic look at sex, HIV, addiction, and recovery.
Emily Carter’s work has appeared in The New Yorker, Story Magazine, and Ruminator Review, among others. The title story in Glory Goes and Gets Some was selected by Garrison Keillor for The Best American Short Stories 1998. She lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
