Overview

Nothing Right by Antonya Nelson

Set in the American southwest, this collection of stories feature characters transitioning from adolescence, to young adulthood, to middle age. Their personal conflicts parallel those of contemporary Americans, post-911, as these artfully rendered characters try to keep themselves intact individually-- and as part of a family-- in the new millennium. Moving and evocative, Nothing Right explores the tenuous relationship between the individual self and the communal self.
