Dawn Paul, The Country of Loneliness

In The Country of Loneliness, the narrator imagines the boyhood and youth of her father, a silent and troubled war veteran whose early death deprived them both of any chance for understanding. The novel, in language that is both crisp and lyrical, richly portrays a time, the early 1930s, and characters shaped by the events of that time, the Great Depression and the years leading to World War II.

Dawn Paul's short fiction has appeared in The Sun, Junctures, 14 Hills, The Redwood Coast Review, and several anthologies. Her first novel Still River, was published in 2006. She was a writing resident at the Ragdale Foundation in Illinois, Vermont Studio Center, and the Spring Creek Project in Oregon. She teaches at the Montserrat College of Art in Beverly, MA.
