INTO THE WILDERNESS gets a great review from Washington’s City Paper!

The Washington City Paper‘s Eve Ottenberg writes, “This fiction focuses on the most important human relations, the ones central to our conceptions of who we are and what life is about. Ebenbach does this all while playing to his strength: using the small, the ordinary, the everyday to give little glimmering glimpses of the enormous, the extraordinary, and the startlingly true.”

BETWEEN CAMELOTS gets a strong review from Writing as a Sacred Path!

Writing as a Sacred Path’s Jill Jepson writes, “Each of these fifteen compact tales is built on crisp language, precise dialogue, and perfectly chosen details. But underneath their apparent simplicity lie fully realized characters living richly imagined lives of need, longing, desire, sorrow, loss, and love. These stories manage to be both delicately wrought and emotionally powerful. They are the kind of stories that read quick-and-easy, but pack a powerful punch.”

Into the Wilderness is IN PRINT TODAY!

INTO THE WILDERNESS, my new short story collection, is officially IN PRINT TODAY!

“For the very real people in David Ebenbach’s vivid and emotional stories,” says author Jesse Lee Kercheval, “becoming a parent—as Judith, the single mother in four of the stories, says—is going ‘into the wilderness.’” Says author Joan Leegant, “Ebenbach takes us deep into the heart of the messy confusion and terror and unfathomable love that make up that shaky state we call parenthood. These stories are fearless, honest and true.”

WANT TO GET YOUR OWN COPY? You can order Into the Wilderness through your local bookstore, or get one online,  at Powells, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or Better World Books.

WANT TO CHECK IT OUT BEFORE BUYING? There’s more information on this website’s Into the Wilderness page.

INTO THE WILDERNESS gets a nice review from the Capital Times!

Writes the Capital Times’ Stephanie Bedford: “[Ebenbach’s] gifts of perception and storytelling are anything but common. The stories in his book delve into the changes wrought by parenthood, an experience he explores from multiple angles like a photographer trying to capture an infinitely captivating subject…. Each story in ‘Into the Wilderness’ is like a sharp-focus snapshot of a moment of parenting: sad, funny, perplexing, but always honest.”
