Eliot Treichel reads from Close Is Fine

11/28/2012 7:00 pm


We are delighted to host Eliot Treichel in an evening of readings from his first collection of short stories about limited but sublime working-class life, Close Is Fine.  

Publisher’s Weekly called Close Is Fine “a clear-eyed and perceptive debut.” Like an album of Polaroid snapshots, Close Is Fine is a finely wrought collection of stories that gives us a brief glimpse into the quirky and complex lives of the inhabitants of a rural Wisconsin town. At times mournful and haunting, this collection celebrates the nobility of simple life—of striving and failing without ever losing hope.

Eliot Treichel is a native of Wisconsin who now lives in Eugene, Ore. In addition to writing, he teaches at Lane Community College in Eugene. He was recently awarded a Career Opportunity Grant from the Oregon Arts Commission. To learn more, readers may visit his website, www.eliottreichel.com.
