Collection of short stories by Jen Knox, winner of the Prize Americana for Prose.
Resolutions is a multi-perspective family drama. Molly May is barely a teenager, but she is adept at navigating extremes. Between her self-help addicted and often-intolerant mother, rebellious and idealistic sister, and two younger brothers--Joey, who seems destined for stardom, and Myron, who seems destined for prison--she has her work cut out for her. Meanwhile, Jasmine, a mother of four, is just trying to find some semblance of freedom. She dreams of finding relief from recurring energy shifts that she attributes to a curse. It isnt until her oldest, Allie, is brutally attacked, and everyone is reunited, that her energy shifts for good. Resolutions is an exploration of freedom and perspective through a coming-of-age lens.
Jen Knoxs short stories can be found in over eighty publications, including The Best Small Fictions 2017, Chicago Tribune, Chicago Quarterly Review, Juked, Literary Orphans, Room Magazine, The Santa Fe Writers Project Quarterly, and The Saturday Evening Post. Knox is a writing coach and an academic program manager at Ohio State University.
