Nic Pizzolatto is the author of the story collection Between Here and the Yellow Sea. Said Booklist: ?Pizzolatto, like the great Richard Ford, is drawn increasingly to sad, even grim scenarios depicting the way people fail to connect. And, also like Ford, he expresses their dissatisfaction in precise language, drawing readers into perfectly realized, frequently unconventional scenarios?These sad, beautifully rendered stories will resonate with fans of the form.?
