Siobhan Fallon - You Know When the Men Are Gone

Colfax Avenue: Siobhan Fallon will read from and sign her debut work You Know When the Men Are Gone ($23.95 Amy Einhorn), an unforgettable collection of short stories, reminiscent of the writing of Raymond Carver and Tim O’Brien. There is an army of women waiting for their men to return in Fort Hood, Texas. Through a series of loosely interconnected stories, Fallon takes readers onto the base, inside the homes, into the marriages and families—intimate places not seen in newspaper articles or politicians’ speeches. When you leave Fort Hood, the sign above the gate warns, You’ve Survived the War, Now Survive the Homecoming. It is eerily prescient.
