Walking on Water

Walking on Water gathers together an engaging and compelling collection of short stories by 24 of the many talented writers to have graduated from The University of Alabama's Program in Creative Writing over the past 20 years. Editor Allen Wier, who taught fiction writing at Alabama from 1980 to 1994, offers us in this celebration of writing a variety of fictional voices that represent widely differing sensibilities and visions. Some stories are by writers whose literary careers are well begun, while others appear here in print for the first time. Wier named the collection after the story by Kim Trevathan, this author's first published fiction, because walking on water is such an apt figure for what the fiction writer attempts with each new story's beginning. Walking on Water is an outstanding anthology, surprising in the rich variety of its voices and stances, extraordinary in the sustained quality of all 24 stories.
