Story Prize Finalists Mueenuddin, Patterson, and Tower Are All Over the Place

Here are some links to essays by, interviews with, and other miscellanea from the three finalists for The Story Prize—Daniyal Mueenuddin, Victoria Patterson, and Wells Tower. Remember, all three finalists will read from their work and discuss it onstage at The New School, in New York City, on Wed., March 3 at 7:30 pm. And at the end of the evening, we will announce the winner.

Daniyal Mueenuddin
  • Ron Hogan's prescient introduction* to Daniyal Mueeduddin writing about a story by Turgenev in January 2009 on Beatrice.com.
  • An interview on NPR's Morning Edition in November 2009.
  • Tour dates for the paperback edition, Jan. 19-25.

Victoria Patterson

Wells Tower
Of course, the best way to experience these collections is to read Mueenuddin's In Other Rooms, Other Wonders, Patterson's Drift, and Tower's Everything Ravaged, Everything Burned.

* I erroneously characterized this as an interview when this was first posted.
