A starred review and another publication for Maurice

Maurice Carlos Ruffin‘s short story, “The Pie Man” (originally published in The South Carolina Review, and recipient of UNO’s 2011 Ernest Svenson Fiction Award) will appear in the upcoming (March 2016) anthology, New Orleans Noir: The Classics, edited by Julie Smith and published by Akashic Books. Publisher’s Weekly recently gave the anthology a starred review, and singled out “The Pie Man,” calling it “a powerful examination of ethnic tensions in post-Katrina New Orleans.”

Maurice will also have a new story coming out in the upcoming first issue of Situate magazine, a journal that will devote its content to a rotating roster of cities. The first issue will focus on New Orleans, and will include Maurice’s story, “A Brief Visit to San Dominick.”
