“GREAT AMERICAN DESERT is a devious and extraordinary new collection of stories from one of our best writers, Terese Svoboda. A kaleidoscopic tour through the Plains that spans decades and beautifully fuses the tonal worlds of comedy, horror, history, and myth. Svoboda is sexy, funny, frighteningly intelligent, and sublimely attuned to the hum of ancient water running underneath our thirsty world.” —Karen Russell (author of SWAMPLANDIA!)

A Guggenheim fellow, Terese Svoboda is the author of 18 books of fiction, poetry, and essay, including BOHEMIAN GIRL (a novel set in Nebraska, with echoes of Willa Cather) and the biography ANYTHING THAT BURNS YOU: A PORTRAIT OF LOLA RIDGE, RADICAL POET.
