Benicia Literary Arts - D. Wystan Owen

D. Wystan Owen, author of Other People's Love Affairs, will be at Bookshop Benicia on Thursday, November 1, from 7 to 9 pm. Owen holds an MFA from the Iowa Writers’ Workshop. His fiction and essays have appeared in A Public Space, the American ScholarLiterary Hub, and the Threepenny Review, where he is Deputy Editor. A citizen dually of the United States and the United Kingdom, he now lives in Northern California.

In the ten luminous stories of the author's debut collection, Other People's Love Affairs, the people of Glass, a picturesque village on the rugged English coast, are haunted by longings and deeply held secrets, captive to pasts that remain as alive as the present. Each story takes us into the lives of characters reaching earnestly and often courageously for connection to the people they have loved. Owen observes their heartbreaks, their small triumphs, and their generous capacity for grace.
