Congratulations to Leslie Stein who won the LA Times Book Prize last weekend for her wonderful book Present. Also, if you haven't been paying attention, Leslie has been on fire recently.

Catch up on her comics for the New Yorker here and read a substantial excerpt of Present on the PEN America blog.

Then nab yourself a copy of Present and settle in. Leslie's gift for recognizing the beauty (and comedy) in the everyday has never been more potent or more charming. These stories do what great short stories do - find the right beats and capture a moment eloquently. Congratulations, Leslie!
