“Sublime short stories of race, grief, and belonging . . . an extraordinary new collection . . .” —The New Yorker
 
“Evans’s new stories present rich plots reflecting on race relations, grief, and love . . .” —The New York Times Book Review, Editor’s Choice

“Danielle Evans demonstrates, once again, that she is the finest short story writer working today.” —Roxane Gay, The New York Times–bestselling author of Difficult Women and Bad Feminist

The award-winning author of Before You Suffocate Your Own Fool Self brings her signature voice and insight to the subjects of race, grief, apology, and American history.

Danielle Evans is widely acclaimed for her blisteringly smart voice and X-ray insights into complex human relationships. With The Office of Historical Corrections, Evans zooms in on particular moments and relationships in her characters’ lives in a way that allows them to speak to larger issues of race, culture, and history. She introduces us to Black and multiracial characters who are experiencing the universal confusions of lust and love, and getting walloped by grief—all while exploring how history haunts us, personally and collectively. Ultimately, she provokes us to think about the truths of American history—about who gets to tell them, and the cost of setting the record straight.

In “Boys Go to Jupiter,” a white college student tries to reinvent herself after a photo of her in a Confederate-flag bikini goes viral. In “Richard of York Gave Battle in Vain,” a photojournalist is forced to confront her own losses while attending an old friend’s unexpectedly dramatic wedding. And in the eye-opening title novella, a black scholar from Washington, DC, is drawn into a complex historical mystery that spans generations and puts her job, her love life, and her oldest friendship at risk.

Escaping Trauma. A gritty, eye opening, and refreshing exploration of relationships, sex, and emotions. Part history lesson, part introspective self discovery, with a helpful sprinkling of cynicism. Packaged in a refreshing and free flowing narrative style that keeps you engaged. Daniel Evans brings us a thorough analysis of the weight of trauma and how it stymies dreams. Pointing out landmarks spread across the disastrous landscape of youthful decisions and the the self-centered blindness of existence. There is no judgment though, just a pure telling of what is. Each of the voices in the various stories displays their own version of escapism, the illusiveness of finding closure, and the walls they construct to keep the past in the rear view. This a quick read that is intellectually stimulating and emotionally engaging. The ending will knock the wind out of you.

A Book About Today. A collection of luscious and interesting short stories the last being about the Office of Historical Corrections. At a time when we are all painfully questioning history and present and the real and the fake, this story takes us to a time when an official Washington DC agency makes corrections. But can we stand the truth?

Wow. Unbelievably amazing
