What happens to us when someone we care about loses her language, memory, identity? That question leads Paul Lisicky to God, sex, family, childhood, and adulthood in his latest story collection, Unbuilt Projects (Four Way Books, $16.95). “If there’s a place for poetry and prose to co-habitate, it’s here in Lisicky’s world . . .”—D.A. Powell. Lisicky is the author of Lawnboy, Famous Builder, and The Burning House. He is a recipient of awards from the National Endownment for the Arts, the James Michener/Copernicus Society, and the Fine Arts Word Center in Provincetown. He is currently the New Voices Professor in the MFA Program at Rutgers-Camden. His memoir, The Narrow Door, will be published in 2014.
