Each of Robert Garner McBrearty’s stories has its own sensibility, but what his characters share is a desire to know how best to live when confronted by unforeseeable chance. Here readers will meet budding writers, ailing professors, reluctant gunslingers, and kidnapped kids; they grapple with conflicts of conscience and the mysteries of love. McBrearty excels in devising believable worlds and characters with open, sometimes breakable, hearts.

Robert Garner McBrearty’s stories have been anthologized in the Pushcart Prize collection and widely published in literary journals that include the North American Review, Missouri Review, New England Review, Narrative Magazine, StoryQuarterly, and Mississippi Review. Robert’s stories have been selected for performances at Stories on Stage in Denver, and at Arts and Letters Live at the Dallas Museum of Art. Other awards include fellowships to the MacDowell Colony, the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, Mass., and a Sherwood Anderson Foundation Fiction Award. He is the author of two other story collections, A Night at the Y and Episode.
