Book CoverAssistant Professor of English Lisa Graley's collection of short stories, The Current That Carries, winner of the Flannery O'Connor Award for Short Fiction, has just been released by University of Georgia Press. Kirkus describes it as "a subtle, powerful portrait of the strength and limits of human connectedness." Robert Olen Butler notes, "The Current That Carries is profoundly in touch with the ways the world can reveal transcendent grace through the simplest things, the humblest things, even in the quotidian clutter of modern life and culture. These are ravishingly beautiful stories. Lisa Graley is truly an important new writer. Flannery O'Connor would have loved her sensibility, would have loved this book."

The collection is available from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and the UGA Press.
