MIDDLE MEN launches today

Middle Men, a collection of short stories by Jim Gavin (Fiction 2011), will be released today by Simon & Schuster. In a starred review, Kirkus has called Middle Men “exceptionalthe best kind of satire: barbed and hilarious, but suffused with compassion”, and The Los Angeles Times has selected Jim as one of their “Faces to watch in 2013.” (Follow the link and then click “Books.”) The collection includes “Costello,” which appeared previously in the New Yorker.

Jim’s work has appeared in the New Yorker (full text of the story available online), the Paris Review (ditto), and Zyzzyva. He received one of our 2011 Global Fellowships in Fiction, on which he traveled to Nicaragua. Jim was a Stegner Fellow before coming to BU to get his MFA.
