Scott Gould’s work has appeared in Kenyon Review, Carolina Quarterly, New Madrid Journal, The Bitter Southerner, Black Warrior Review, Eclectica, New Ohio Review, The Raleigh Review, New Stories from the South, and New Southern Harmonies, among others. He is a two-time winner of the Artist Fellowship in Prose from the South Carolina Arts Commission and a past winner of the Fiction Fellowship from the South Carolina Academy of Authors. Gould chairs the creative writing department at the S.C. Governor’s School for the Arts & Humanities in Greenville. His oldest daughter is getting married at the end of May, so he will be broke for the foreseeable future. 


Gould walks a tightrope, his arms dipping back and forth between comedy and tragedy to find balance, and like all of the South’s best storytellers, he does not stumble and he does not fall. This is a dazzling collection.
