Some Bore Gifts 

A.G. Harmon’s Some Bore Gifts is an eclectic collection of stories spanning the traditional to the satirical, with a kaleidoscope of viewpoints and characters that includes tree cutters, department store pianists, museum guides, physicians, florists, actresses, bank managers, junk salesmen, personal trainers, and English professors. Harmon’s depiction of the disenfranchised and the socially poised are equally spellbinding, as are his vivid scenes of both the quotidian and the aberrant. This captivating book challenges and entertains from start to finish.

Harmon’s novel, A House All Stilled (UT Press 2002), was awarded The Peter Taylor Prize for the Novel in 2002, and was nominated for the Virginia Literary Prize and the Pen-Hemingway Award. His novel Fortnight, was the runner-up for The William Faulkner Prize for the Novel in 2007. His short fiction, essays, and criticism have appeared in Shenandoah, The Antioch Review, Triquarterly, Image, The St. Katherine Review, The Bellingham Review, and Commonweal, among others. A book on the law in Shakespeare—Eternal Bonds, True Contracts: Law and Nature in Shakespeare's Problem Plays—was published by State University of New York Press in 2004.
