My story "Mercy" is included in the new edition of THE OXFORD BOOK OF AMERICAN SHORT STORIES, edited by Joyce Carol Oates, just out from Oxford University Press. It's included with a veritable Murderer's Row of folks, from Washington Irving to Jhumpa Lahiri via Eudora Welty and Ha Jin. Pretty happy about this one.Here's are links:http://www.oup.com/us/catalog/general/subject/LiteratureEnglish/AmericanLiterature/?view=usa&sf=toc&ci=9780199744398http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0199744394/ref=kinw_rke_rti_1Congrats, PB!!!
