A major literary debut--vivid, emotionally powerful stories from the modern South. Set in the big cities, tiny hamlets, mountain hollows, and tourist towns of North Carolina, Earley's remarkable stories are suffused with a special sense of place--and alive with the mysteries of the human heart.

I bought this beautiful collection of stories years ago and loved it. Then I moved. And moved again. And again. All my books went into boxes, which went into my parents' attic. I recently revisited the attic and found HERE WE ARE IN PARADISE at the top of a box marked UTENSILS. It's as stunning now as it was the first time I read it. I read the opening paragraphs of 'Charlotte' to my college fiction writing students and made them write about 'something that is gone'-- you know, like the professional wrestlers. They must have been inspired, because they turned in some of their best work yet. If you missed this collection when it first came out, read it now!
