Rising Literary Talent Jamie Quatro Shows Us ‘More’

I Want To Show You More, by Jamie Quatro (Grove Press)
Jamie Quatro, author of 'I Want To Show You More,' joins WUTC for an interview.

Grove/Atlantic published Barry Hannah, Charles Frazier and other celebrated Southern authors.  Now, Grove/Atlantic is adding Jamie Quatro to their roster.  Quatro’s debut collection of short stories, I Want To Show You More, comes out in March, and she visited WUTC for an interview.

(Story selections in this segment were read by Rachel Smith.)

Quatro has been called a “brilliant new voice in American fiction.”  Her work has appeared in prominent literary journals such as Ploughshares, The Southern Review and Oxford American, where she’s a contributing editor.  Her stories are a mesmerizing mix of magic realism, Southern lit, family tragedies, musings on internet-age marital indiscretions, and nuanced portrayals of faith in the South.
