This new and important anthology of contemporary women writers includes the work of Kim Barnes, Mary Clearman Blew, Claire Davis, Kelly Cherry, Amina Gautier, Elizabeth Graver, Ann Harleman, Pam Houston, Jill McCorkle, Marjorie Sandor, Margot Singer, and Maura Stanton, among others. Advance praise for the collection says: "The Sincerest Form of Flattery offers two singular pleasures: a wonderful selection of stories by immensely talented women writers and a privileged glimpse into the influences that have shaped these stories. This anthology is a terrific addition to the history of women's literature and a gift to all readers eager to understand and enjoy contemporary fiction." -Margot Livesey, author of Eva Moves the Furniture and The Missing World. . "When women get together, secrets get told. In this zesty volume of stories, each writer reveals her source, paying homage to a literary aunt or sister or grandmother. But these stories are no imitations; they have voices all their own. I predict that many of them will, in their turn, inspire a literary niece or daughter or kid sister or granddaughter. This, friends, is girl power." -Monica Wood, author of the novel Any Bitter Thing, and story collection Earnie's Ark.
