Wendy Wimmer’s short story collection featured in The Washington Post

October 19, 2022

Thank you to The Washington Post and to Daphne Kalotay for featuring Wendy Wimmer’s debut collection of short stories, Entry Level, on their list of  “10 award-winning short story collections worth reading.” Of Wimmer’s book, Kalotay says:

“If punchy first sentences are to your taste, Wendy Wimmer’s Entry Level (Autumn House Fiction Prize) is the book for you. . . .  In the delightful “Texts from Beyond,” a company purportedly helps people send messages to deceased relatives. Equally affecting are stories more rooted in the real, where Wimmer gets closer to character and emotion, such as “Billet-Doux,” told via unsent letters addressed to celebrities, random people, inanimate objects, a recurring guy on the BART and the protagonist herself.”
