Jaimy Gordon recommends
The Graybar Hotel (2017)
Curtis Dawkins
"In The Graybar Hotel, Curtis Dawkins brings the contemporary short story at its best into the shadowy world of America at its worst, behind the bars of its overpopulated and ubiquitous prisons. These brilliantly crafted stories - with their formal inventiveness, savory dialogue, meticulous detail, and succinctly compassionate portraiture - are as much a manual in how to write original short fiction as in how to think about prisons."
