Melinda Moustakis


Bear Down, Bear North: Alaska Stories

Recipient of the Flannery O’Connor Award for Short Fiction, Melinda Moustakis’s critically acclaimed debut collection uses linked stories to bring to life a rough-and-tumble family of Alaskan homesteaders. Her characters include salt-tongued fishermen, fisherwomen, and hunters; scrappy storytellers who put themselves in the path of destruction – sometimes a harsh snowstorm, sometimes each other – and live to tell the tale.
