Ms. Durban is another writer who has succeeded in both academia and in the creative writing trenches out here in the world. She was associated with Georgia State University when I was in Atlanta and drifted this way (North Carolina) in 2000. The Laughing Place is a book of hers that has found a home - and multiple readings - with me.
Pam Durban's books include a collection of short stories, All Set About with Fever Trees, and two novels, The Laughing Place, and So Far Back. Her short fiction has been published in The Georgia Review; Tri-Quarterly; The Southern Review; Crazyhorse; Epoch; The New Virginia Review and The Ohio Review, among others, and widely anthologized. Her short story, "Soon," appeared in The Best American Short Stories of the Century, edited by John Updike, and her work has been anthologized in The Best American Short Stories 1997 and twice in New Stories from the South, The Year's Best and in the series'twentieth anniversary edition.
