The landscapes of The Deep Code range from the mountains of western Montana to the tourist traps of the Florida Gulf Coast. These stories tell of desperation and perseverance in the face of generational struggles. With unflinching love, they explore characters bestowed with little more than the refusal to succumb to their own bad choices in life.
Born in Maryland, Charley Henley bounced around as a child, living everywhere from a back-to-the-land community in Eastern Washington to rural Rankin County, Mississippi, disparate locales and people that have fueled the stories of this present volume. He attended the University of Montana, studying philosophy, working in restaurants, and wandering in the woods. He did his graduate work at the University of Alabama and Florida State University. His fiction has appeared in Best New American Voices, The Greensboro Review, and Copper Nickel, among other places. Currently, he lives with his wife and children in the Seattle area. He teaches at the University of Cincinnati. The Deep Code is his debut collection of short stories.
