Noon Edition

Rural Noir Author Bonnie Jo Campbell

Rural fiction does become more timeless. . . . When you canoe down a Michigan river, you can often forget what century you're in.

Bonnie Jo Campbell was named by the Guardian as one of America’s best writers of rural noir.

Her stories and essays have appeared in Story, The Kenyon Review, and Utne Reader, among others. She was a finalist for the 2009 National Book Award in fiction for her short story collection American Salvage, and she won a Pushcart Prize for her story “The Smallest Man in the World.”

Campbell's most recent work is the short story collection Mothers, Tell Your Daughters.
