Winner of the 2005 Drue Heinz Literature Prize, Between Camelots is about the struggle to forge relationships and the spaces that are left when that effort falls short. In the title story, a man at a backyard barbecue waits for a blind date who never shows up. He meets a stranger who advises him to give up the fight; to walk away from intimacy altogether and stop getting hurt. The wisdom-or foolhardiness-of that approach is at the heart of each of these stories. A young man who has converted to Judaism goes home for Christmas in Miami, and finds that his desire to connect to his parents conflicts with his need to move on. These are stories about loss and fear, but also about the courage that drives us all to continue to reach out to the people around us.
