A dazzling new story collection from brilliant, young, award-winning writer Kevin Moffett, Further Interpretations of Real-Life Events illuminates the intimate experiences of characters caught between aspiration and achievement, uncertainty and illumination, inertia and discovery, the past and the future. Channeling unexpected, eclectic voices in a collection perfectly suited to readers of Daniyal Mueenuddin, Alice Sebold, and Dave Eggers, Moffett delivers a nuanced, powerful, humorous, and moving meditation on the trials of transitions and liminal living in today?s modern world. Richard Russo says, ?the first thing you notice reading the stories in Further Interpretations of Real-Life Events is the author?s extraordinary range?of expertise, technique, imagination and wit. There doesn?t seem to be much Kevin Moffett can?t do.?

Review quote

"Kevin Moffett's stories are stealth heartbreakers, as well as wonders of sly detail and perfect tone. He's writing some of the best short fiction around."--Sam Lipsyte
