Congrats and happy pub day to Holly Goddard Jones, fiction faculty member in our MFA Writing Program! Antipodes comes out today from the University of Iowa Press. A new collection of short stories about living in “an era of unknowability, of persistent strangeness,” Antipodes is Holly Goddard Jones’ fourth book.
“As always, Holly Goddard Jones writes like a force of nature; her prose is strong, solid, and full of power. Even more so, her stories are endlessly inventive and witty, showcasing characters who are fully realized and complex human beings holding mirrors up to our own faces—or making us thankful we are not them. Her voice is miraculous in its ability to be singular even while she takes on eclectic premises and themes. Goddard Jones is one of our best writers, and Antipodes is her best book yet.”
