For the last twenty-five years, the fiction writers in the MFA program at the University of New Orleans have met on Monday nights to share and discuss their work, to study and enhance the craft of their calling. Not all the stories contained in this volume were produced for, and displayed in, Monday-night workshop, but all the writers included here devoted three years of Monday nights to sharpening their literary talents. This book celebrates the writers they have become.
