Full of humor and pathos, as southern stories love to be, the fifteen short-shorts in this debut collection will haunt you like a memory. From simple family dysfunction to tragic twists of fate, the characters in Surviving Nashville suffer their losses with surprising grace. Stacy Barton is a storyteller with an ear for dialect, an eye for detail and a heart for her characters—even the mean ones.
