From the critically acclaimed author of the novel The Good Brother and memoir My Father the Pornographer, Out of the Woods is Chris Offutt’s fiercely original short story collection the New York Times calls “a magical book”. Arriving seven years after Offutt’s debut collection Kentucky Straight, Out of the Woods returns a masterly writer to the form which garnered him not only critical praise but many prestigious awards. Offutt, who “draws landscape and constructs dialogue with the eyes and ears of a native son” (The Miami Herald), is on strong home turf here, capturing those who have left the Kentucky hills and long to return. These nine stories of gravediggers and drifters, gamblers and truck drivers a long way from home, are tales so full of hard edges they can't help but tell some hard truths.

Seventy deeply troubled teenagers spend weeks, months, even years on a locked psychiatric ward. They're not just failing in school, not just using drugs. They are out of control--violent or suicidal, in trouble with the law, unpredictable, and dangerous. Their futures are at risk. Twenty years later, most of them still struggle. But astonishingly, a handful are thriving. They're off drugs and on the right side of the law. They've finished school and hold jobs that matter to them. They have close friends and are responsible, loving parents. What happened? How did some kids stumble out of the woods while others remain lost? Could their strikingly different futures have been predicted back during their teenage struggles? The kids provide the answers in a series of interviews that began during their hospitalizations and ended years later. Even in the early days, the resilient kids had a grasp of how they contributed to their own troubles. They tried to make sense of their experience and they groped toward an understanding of other people's inner lives. In their own impatient voices, Out of the Woods portrays edgy teenagers developing into thoughtful, responsible adults. Listening in on interviews through the years, narratives that are often poignant, sometimes dramatic, frequently funny, we hear the kids growing into more composed--yet always recognizable--versions of their tough and feisty selves.

Out of the Woods studies the birth and early evolution of the literary fairy tale in Italy and France in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, from the early Italian collections (Straparola and Basile), through the "first wave" of fairy tale production in the France of Louis XIV (Perrault and d'Aulnoy), up to later eighteenth-century manipulations and transformations (Hamilton, Gozzi, Casanova). The tales analyzed here were appropriated from the oral tradition and transformed by professional men and women of letters into sophisticated literary creations for an elite audience of court and salon frequenters. Thus, far from being minor works or "entertainment for little ones," these fantastic tales contributed to an interrogation and revision of the cultural history of their times, offering new paradigms of narrative representation and social interaction.

2018 Reading the West Book Awards Nonfiction Winner Have you ever wondered about society’s desire to cultivate the perfect lawn, why we view some animals as “good” and some as “bad,” or even thought about the bits of nature inside everyday items–toothbrushes, cell phones, and coffee mugs? In this fresh and introspective collection of essays, Julia Corbett examines nature in our lives with all of its ironies and contradictions by seamlessly integrating personal narratives with morsels of highly digestible science and research. Each story delves into an overlooked aspect of our relationship with nature—insects, garbage, backyards, noise, open doors, animals, and language—and how we cover our tracks. With a keen sense of irony and humor and an awareness of the miraculous in the mundane, Julia recognizes the contradictions of contemporary life. She confronts the owner of a high-end market who insists on keeping his doors open in all temperatures. Takes us on a trip to a new mall with a replica of a trout stream that once flowed nearby. The phrase “out of the woods” guides us through layers of meaning to a contemplation of grief, remembrance, and resilience. Out of the Woods leads to surprising insights into the products, practices, and phrases we take for granted in our everyday encounters with nature and encourages us all to consider how we might re-value or reimagine our relationships with nature in our everyday lives.

Sophie Nelson is entering the second phase of her life. Long since divorced, she has been on her own for longer than she was ever married; her children are all grown, and she’s tired of the corporate rat race. Sophie decides to retire to a small, cozy town in Vermont to pursue her real passion: writing. There, she finds a happy home where she can live alone, surrounded by her work and her words. But things soon take a mysterious turn. One night, she comes home to find a light on in her safe sanctuary. There has been an intruder in her house, and Sophie is reminded that single life for a woman is not always safe. Local authorities tell her not to worry, but the murder of her neighbor soon follows the intrusion. The small town, so lacking in crime, is thrown into turmoil. Meanwhile, Sophie meets Sam Wood, and in spite of the tragedy the two are drawn to each other. Sophie is hesitant to start a romantic relationship, though, what with a murderer roaming the streets. The people of town cannot possibly foresee their villain is someone they know quite well, and Sophie may have to give up a little of her independence to allow herself to be saved—before she becomes the next victim.
