Most recently I wrote about Ghosts of Wyoming (Graywolf), her collection of short stories, which was hailed by critics across the country. I loved it, too, of course I did, and you can find my brief blog posting here.
All of which is prefatory to this fabulous bit of news: Alyson Hagy has won the 2011 Devil's Kitchen Award in Prose for Ghosts and will be participating in the Devil's Kitchen Fall Literary Festival at Southern Illinois University Carbondale. Anyone close enough to go should really try to meet her.
Or buy her book. It will astound you. (She's got a new novel due out soon. You'll read about that one here, I can assure you.)
