Pre-Order Melanie McGee Bianchi's Debut Collection

This debut short story collection will be available on June 24th. Pre-order your copy today.

A young maid at an upscale resort hides her banjo-playing freight hopper brother. An unlikely romance bridges a quarter-century age gap and a 150-year-old murder. A man tries to turn his sheltered mother’s backyard shed into a pricey vacation rental. A gig worker must shake off her darker identity to become a professional baby namer. This mesmeric debut collection of stories set in the Appalachian mountains weaves together the curious and the sublime, with Bianchi’s lyrical style cutting straight to the heart of the matter.

"Bianchi has created worlds that seem simultaneously magical and rooted in the grit of rural reality – a vexing combination that dares the reader at every turn. Her rich charac-ters grow within us in uncomfortable and compelling ways that force the next page turn."
-Annette Saunooke Clapsaddle, author of Even As We Breathe
