With Midwestern practicality and deft lyricism, award-winning author Erin Pringle has constructed Unexpected Weather Events, a collection of stories following irrepressible characters facing tough situations--cancer, mental illness, death. Set against winter landscapes and fading small towns, this collection illuminates how joy can flicker within unpredictable tragedy.
"Erin Pringle is my favorite living author. This breathtaking new collection more than solidifies that opinion. Her writing is soul-rich with wonder and terror, tapping into a child's dream-like experience of family, change, and death. These are not only stories; each piece is a spell swirling with grief, love, and the bitter-strong beauty of being alive." —Owen Egerton, author of Hollow and How Best To Avoid Dying
"Erin Pringle has done it again. In this clutch of grimly gorgeous stories, resilient characters navigate perilous conditions and deteriorating landscapes in their efforts to transcend, or at least come to terms with, the dicey, mysterious predicaments of their strangely familiar lives." —Tom Noyes, author of The Substance Of Things Hoped For
"This book reminded me: We are not alone in our sorrow; there are always new ways--even in a petrifying darkness--to see and to love." —Sharma Shields, author of The Cassandra
