Henry Award and Big Muddy magazine’s Mighty River Short Story Prize winner Keith Eisner; one by National Book Foundation’s “5 Under 35” novelist Megan Kruse; and even excerpts from James Robert Peery’s Angels Sleep Alone, a bestselling author who died in 1954 leaving behind an unpublished manuscript the rights to which were given to Mud Flat Press.
by Alec Clayton
Intense, funny and true to life, Teacher begins with a damaged and uncertain Eva McRoy, a bisexual high school English teacher who lost custody and contact with her child after a tumultuous divorce. Her self-identity is now under threat at work and in relationships. Yet Eva grows in identity and power as she starts an LGBT support group at school, joins in a protest of a police shooting of a young Black man, and survives a school shooting herself. Through these struggles, she discovers a passion for justice and renews a sense of self that had waned.
