In this collection of stories, Raymond stretches the boundaries of place as she explores the indelible imprint of home upon the self, and the ways in which new frontiers both defy and confirm who we are.  From a biologist navigating the stark, icy moonscape of Antarctica to a businesswoman seeking refuge in the lonely islands of the South Pacific, the characters in these stories abandon their native landscapes only to find that, once separated from the ordinary, they must confront new interpretations of who they are, and who they’re meant to be.  

Midge Raymond's short-story collection, Forgetting English (Eastern Washington University Press, 2009), received the Spokane Prize for Short Fiction. Her work has appeared in countless publications, she is on the editorial board of the literary journal Green Hills Literary Lantern, and she teaches writing at Richard Hugo House in Seattle.
