Praise for What Happens Next?
"A literate, thoughtful memoir/essay collection from the heartland."—Kirkus

"This remarkable memoir-in-essays respects time but is not enslaved to it. Bauer moves in circular fashion among incidents that foreshadow later ones and recall earlier. It's not a linear but a spiral history, which touches us and then touches again. As for the language: in each sentence each word seems the only possible choice. How easily the prose lets us read it; what artistic intensity made it that way."—Edith Pearlman, author, Binocular Vision, winner of the 2012 National Book Critics Circle Award

Praise for The Thin Tear in the Fabric of Space
Winner of the Iowa Short Fiction Award

"Douglas Trevor writes movingly and persuasively about the ways in which people can be unmoored by loss. The bereaved parents and brokenhearted students in his stories turn to travel and to drink and most of all to book for solace: Thoreau's Walden, Lowell's poetry, and even Gray's Anatomy. Each of the characters is a fully realized human being, a small civilization of memories and preoccupations, and the final paragraphs of Trevor's stories are among the most knowing and beautiful you are ever likely to read."—Kevin Brockmeier
