Debra Monroe
is the author of three books of fiction: The Source of Trouble which won the Flannery O'Connor Award for Short Fiction in 1990; a second story collection published in 1995, A Wild, Cold State, which appeared on best books lists in Vanity Fair and Elle magazine, and a novel, Newfangled, which was nominated for the National Book Award.
