Publishers Weekly calls REMARKABLE 'daring and confidently written'

Publishers Weekly is calling Dinah Cox's debut fiction collection Remarkable "daring and confidently written" in a new review. Winner of the BOA Short Fiction Prize, Cox gives us stories that are "sharp and surprising, venturing fearlessly into unexpected territory."

Set within the resilient Great Plains, these award-winning stories are marked by the region’s people and landscape, and the distinctive way it is both regressive in its politics yet also stumbling toward something better.

According to the review, "The stories neither revere nor despise their Oklahoma setting, even as many of Cox's delightfully odd characters feel stuck there and dream of someday getting out."

"Some of the stories, such as 'Glue,' in which a lonely woman working a boring office job magically corresponds with the object of her desire, veer off course, but Cox's powerful narrative voice saves them from becoming too involved in their own eccentricities. This is a daring and confidently written collection."
