Eugene Cross

Fires of Our Choosing

Dzanc Books

A boy acts out the death of his father and abandonment by his brother through a savage playground beating; a young man confronts his own troubled history when asked to hire his girlfriend’s strung-out brother; and a babysitter works through a scorching hot summer afternoon that will prove to alter her life forever. Praised by Jill McCorkle, who calls Eugene Cross “a wise and wonderful talent,” and Dan Chaon, who called Fires of our Choosing “a memorable, beautiful, heartbreaking book,” Cross’s debut story collection is filled with dark humor and deep insight into the human condition. Cross is adjunct faculty in the Fiction Writing Department of Columbia College Chicago.
