Congratulations to Dennis McFadden, winner of the 2016 Press 53 Short Fiction Award for his story collection Jimtown Road.
Kevin Morgan Watson, publisher and judge for the Press 53 Short Fiction Award, writes, “Jimtown Road is a uniquely linked collection of stories that span years and lifetimes, sometimes gritty and hard-hitting, other times laugh-out-loud funny. Each story kept me riveted and I found myself at the end of each looking forward to wherever the next story would take me.”
The book will be published in October.
McFadden has published stories in numerous journals, including Missouri Review, Massachusetts Review, and New England Review, most recently in 35.3.
