aka B K Evenson

Brian Evenson received an O. Henry Award for his story "Two Brothers" and has twice received O. Henry honorable mentions. In 1995 he received an NEA Fellowship; that same year he was told by Brigham Young University that if he continued to write fiction in the same vein as his first book, he would be fired.

Brian Evenson recommends

The Innocent Party (2012)
Aimee Parkison
"Aimee Parkison most often begins softly, slowly stripping away each layer of social interaction to get at what is numinous and frightening and necessary about living in the real world. These are stories both about the difficulty and the intense suddenness of human connection, about the profound link that exists between being in love and being alone."

Mormama (2017)
Kit Reed
"Through a chorus of living and dead voices, all of which know something but none of which know everything Mormama offers the story of a family trauma that has come to infect a place. A terrific story that keeps you on your toes to the very end."
