by Richard Fellinger

Book Image Not Available
Overview
Winner of the 2011 Serena McDonald Kennedy Fiction Award, They Hover Over Us is a powerful collection of short stories about people from Pennsylvania's Rust Belt. Gritty, witty and ponderous, this collection explores complex yet relatable themes such as longing, loss and love. These are contemporary stories about people who never had a fair shot in life, or who remain stuck in mismatched relationships, or are struggling to overcome hardscrabble family histories. See why one reviewer called these stories "flawless diamonds mined from Pennsylvania's very own coal mines, steel towns and Navy yards."
Description
Winner of the 2011 Serena McDonald Kennedy Fiction Award, They Hover Over Us is a powerful collection of short stories about people from Pennsylvania's Rust Belt. Gritty, witty and ponderous, this collection explores complex yet relatable themes such as longing, loss and love. These are stories about real people you won't forget--contemporary stories about people who never had a fair shot in life, or who remain stuck in mismatched relationships, or are struggling to overcome hardscrabble family histories. Starkey Flythe, judge for the Serena McDonald Kennedy Award, wrote that these winning stories "have a stunning reality which is yet clothed and softened by an unforgettable human spirit." Other reviewers were just as complimentary: Author Kaylie Jones called these stories "flawless diamonds mined from Pennsylvania's very own coal mines, steel towns and Navy yards."
