Patricia Henley is the author of two other novels, four short-story collections and two chapbooks of poetry. Her first book of stories, Friday Night at Silver Star, was the winner of the Montana First Book Award, and her first novel, Hummingbird House, was a finalist for both the National Book Award and The New Yorker Fiction Prize. Her second novel, In the River Sweet, was widely praised and was a Border’s Original Voices selection. She taught in the MFA program at Purdue University for 25 years.
