Novelist Kate Rounds reviews John Weir’s YOUR NOSTALGIA IS KILLING ME!

For three decades, the novelist and short story writer John Weir has been spooling out wry, wrenching narratives that ground us in time and place.

Now, Red Hen Press has released Your Nostalgia is Killing Me, winner of the Grace Paley Prize for Short Fiction. These 11 linked stories return us to Weir’s world of gay guys and their girlfriends, gobsmacked by Greenwich Village, and hailing from the tree-named towns of New Jersey.
