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.

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.
