Here from Queens and here with a stellar debut book of stories is Sara Majka. Her collection, Cities I’ve Never Lived In (A Public Space/Graywolf Press), is one of the most heralded of the season. “Like Alice Munro and Raymond Carver, Sara Majka writes stories of people on society’s ragged edge - in money trouble, work trouble, heart trouble - and does so with tremendous subtlety and a grave sophistication all her own.” - Salvatore Scibona. “Prodigal with insight into why and how people love and leave, and love again. Humane, dazzling, and knowing.” - Kelly Link.
