"Refugees" in Southern Humanities Review

I was delighted yesterday when I got my contributor's copy of Southern Humanities Review in the mail in which my story "Refugees" is included. Although the story was accepted two years ago and is included in my collection Interpreters, it's still nice to see it come out in print form again. In a nutshell, the story is about a family of North Korean refugees who come to Canada and the veracity of the story they tell to the narrator. What was a surprise to me when I was going over the proofs a few months ago was that the opening scene is quite a bit different from the one in the book. I forgot all about that earlier version, and now I'm not sure why I ever changed it in the first place. Anyway, I'm excited to see it out there in the bigger world. To order your copy, click here.
