Description


Seth Johnson's debut story collection comprises twelve linked tales set in Kentucky against the backdrop of the disintegration of a young marriage amidst thwarted expectations and contrasted by illustrations of the unconditional love freely given by dogs. A man on the run hides out at a boarding house owned by a paraplegic woman whose uncle's dog gives birth with an ease that impresses the observers of this ordinary event. A young man confesses his extramarital affairs to his mother. A housewife attends the funeral of a young woman whom she never knew. In precise, evocative prose, The Things We Do for Women explores the perpetual desire for love and the obstacles to obtaining it.

Praise For…


“… [The Things We Do for Women], Johnson’s first book, is worth reading for the strength of the author’s vision, the authenticity of his writing, and the promise it gives of future reading pleasure. Libraries with short story fans, literary-fiction aficionados, and large fiction collections should give serious consideration to this title.”
