Amanda Eyre Ward: Love Stories In This Town
Amanda Eyre Ward scribbled (as she calls it) for ten years before her first book was published. And she wants you to know that no matter how hard writing is, it's worth it. Four books later, Ward is scribbling her fifth in Austin, Texas, where she lives with her geologist husband and their two children.
Love Stories In This Town is Ward's first collection of short stories. Her stories take place in Montana, Texas, and Saudi Arabia, among others, and tackle subjects like terrorism, motherhood, and "grave matters of the heart" (Publishers Weekly).
