I am a longtime fan of Richard Bausch and caught a glimpse of his name in the most recent Narrative Magazine email update. It was then that I was tipped off to the above reading. I attended GMU in the late 90’s when he taught there but never had the pleasure of taking one of his fiction classes (though I did pass him a few times on campus before I’d ever read him). You can read some of Bausch’s work at Narrative Magazine and elsewhere online.
I’m new to Richard Russo’s writing and hope to check him out soon. You can read his story Horseman at The Atlantic online.
