Knockemstiff Receives National Recognition

Congratulations to Third Coast author, Donald Ray Pollack. His debut collection of short stories, Knockemstiff, has garnered national attention in recent weeks, including a favorable review in the March 23, 2008 edition of the New York Times Book Review. Pollack published his first story, "Discipline," in our Spring 2005 Tenth Anniversary issue (and "Lard" in Fall 2006). In his review, Jonathan Miles describes Pollack's voice as "fresh and full-throated," and claims his best stories, "leave an indelible smear." Here is a link to the complete review.
