In Envy Country


Winner of the 2010 Richard Sullivan Prize in Fiction, Joan Frank’s second story collection, In Envy Country, explores the uncertainties and triumphs of women and men in and out of love and marriage, at varying ages and stages of contemporary American life. By turns wry, pained, and amused, In Envy Country investigates those small, complex truths that gain clarity with time and distance. Frank, whose earlier books have been reviewed in The New York Times Book Review and Publisher’s Weekly, sets these stories in Paris, California, and Spain.
