NC Literary Hall of Fame

 

 

Hats Off! to Peter Makuck whose short-story collection Wins and Losses was a December "Read of the Month" and favorably reviewed in Southern Literary Review. "Makuck gets under the skins of his characters so that the reader understands why they are acting the way they are, though the protagonists themselves may not realize why," writes reviewer Brendan Galvin. "This constitutes a deep understanding of the human condition as it exists in today’s America, so often tinged with narcissism and permanent immaturity, and in part explains why Makuck has been compared to such fiction masters as John Cheever and John Updike, among others."
