TMR writer in Best American 2008

We’re thrilled to announce that Katie Chase’s short story, “Man and Wife,” has been selected by guest editor Salman Rushdie for inclusion in Best American Short Stories 2008! “Man and Wife” — Katie’s first publication! — appeared in our Summer 2007 issue and has quickly become a staff favorite.  In fact, we gave it to our internship class this semester as an example of “what we’re looking for” in fiction: a bold theme, details that are at once surprising and convincing, and a strong ending.  Best American 2008 will be published this fall, but until then, you can read “Man and Wife” in TMR 30:2. Congratulations, Katie!
