About the Author
Praise For Orders of Protection (Katherine Anne Porter Prize in Short Fiction #18)…
“Orders of Protection floored me. The range of style, voice, and angles of approach had me checking over and over to confirm I was still reading the same magical book. However, these stories do more than sing their own unique songs. As I read, the myriad voices came together in a perfect harmony of pain, longing, fear, and, however strangely, comfort. It’s been a long time since I read a story collection with such excitement, so eager to see what each new installment would bring.”—Colin Winnette, author of The Job of the Wasp and Haints Stay and judge
“Jenn Hollmeyer writes deftly, with a poet’s clarity, about ordinary disappointments in life, secrets, and the keepers of those secrets and disappointments who feel achingly familiar. This is a robust collection of stories to savor.”—Patricia Henley, author of Other Heartbreaks
“The prize-winning collection, Orders of Protection, introduces a wonderfully talented writer. Jenn Hollmeyer has a keen eye for the subtleties and pitfalls of family life. She's smart, tough-minded, and compassionate.”—Lynne Sharon Schwartz, author of The Writing on the Wall
