Thomas Pierce - Hall of Small Mammals: Stories

Friday, January 23, 2015 - 7:00pm

The stories in Thomas Pierce’s Hall of Small Mammals take place at the confluence of the commonplace and the cosmic, the intimate and the infinite. A fossil-hunter, a comedian, a hot-air balloon pilot, parents and children, believers and nonbelievers, the people in these stories are struggling to understand the absurdity and the magnitude of what it means to exist in a family, to exist in the world.

Thomas Pierce was born and raised in South Carolina. His stories have appeared in The New Yorker, The AtlanticOxford American, and elsewhere. A graduate of the University of Virginia creative writing program, he lives in Charlottesville, Virginia, with his wife and daughter.
