About Eugene Cross

Eugene Cross captures much of his generation's fears and excitements with a collection of realistic stories that borders on darkness at times. His is a voice combining humor and pathos with an edginess creating fresh new stories that are being published in great literary journals regularly. A boy acts out at the death of his father and abandonment by his brother through a savage playground beating- a young man confronts his own troubled history when asked to hire on his girlfriend's strung-out brother in an attempt to keep him out of prison- a teenage babysitter works through a scorching-hot summer afternoon that will prove to alter her life forever- a grieving widower finds comfort in the unlikeliest of places, a recently-built casino- an itinerant farm worker visits the same former lover in South Dakota year after year while following the Harvest north- two friends search for excuses and fail to claim responsibility for their own decisions after one loses his father, and the other's house burns to the ground- and a taxidermist falls in love with the ex-wife of his high school bully and tries to convince her to marry him despite her son who seems to share his father's bullying mentality. "A brilliant, sometimes heartbreaking debut by this gifted young writer and Columbia writing teacher. Cross captures the angst and tenderness of the young men and women growing up in the rust belt with little hope and less luck. The moments of grace and redemption shine through. I loved every story." --Linda Bubon, Women
