The Children in the Woods

A collection of stories by

PEN/Faulkner Award for fiction Best Book (nominee)
"Powerful . . . Fiction of a very high order . . . Frederick Busch at his best."
-- Los Angeles Times Book Review
"[These] provocative tales center around relationships gone awry, families grappling with loss, and lonely men and women struggling with remnants of love . . . . What Busch ultimately serves is a heady and rewarding brew made up of people as real as ourselves, groping for and sometimes even discovering the comforts of love."
-- USA Today
"Memorable . . . [The] stories leap off the page with astonishing resilience and vigor. . . . Busch is a chronicler of domestic manners whose insights into family hierarchies transcend the factual to attain poetry and truth."
-- The Boston Globe
