Winner of the 2007 Spokane Prize for Short Fiction
Forgetting English explores the indelible imprint of home upon
identity and the ways in which new frontiers both defy and
confirm it. From a biologist navigating the icy moonscape of
Antarctica to a businesswoman seeking refuge in the South Pacific, the characters who inhabit these stories travel for business and for pleasure, out of duty and in search of freedom, and each comes face-to-face with the unexpected.
