If you have voices you'd better listen to them Flannery O'Connor once said. Since 1982 the University of Georgia Press has published the winners of the Flannery O'Connor Award for Short Fiction, one of the country's most prestigious literary awards. Now celebrating its 15th year, the award continues to introduce some of the most exciting new voices in fiction writing today. ""Listening to the Voices"" is a collection of stories from the most recent winners of the award.
Charles East was for many years the editor of the Flannery O' Connor Award for Short Fiction series. He is the author of two collections of short stories, "Where the Music Was" (Georgia) and "Distant Friends and Intimate Strangers." He lives in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
