Bonnie Jo Campbell’s story collection Women and Other Animals won the AWP prize for short fiction, and details the lives of extraordinary females in rural and small town Michigan. Her first novel, Q Road, delves into the lives of a rural community where development pressures are bringing unwelcome change in the character of the land. Her short fiction collection American Salvage was finalist for the National Book Award and the National Book Critic’s Circle Award.  The New York Times Book Review described her novel Once Upon a River as "an excellent American parable about the consequences of our favorite ideal, freedom."
