Read full description of the books Into the Wilderness:
For the very real people in David Ebenbach s vivid and emotional stories, says author Jesse Lee Kercheval, becoming a parent as Judith, the single mother in four of the stories, says is going into the wilderness. The collection Into the Wilderness explores the theme of parenthood from many angles: an eager-to-connect divorced father takes his kids to a Jewish-themed baseball game; a lesbian couple tries to decide whether their toddler son needs a man in his life; one young couple debates the idea of parenthood while another struggles with infertility; a reserved father uses an all-you-can-eat buffet to comfort his heartbroken son. But the backbone of the collection is Judith, who we follow through her challenging first weeks of motherhood, culminating in an intense and redemptive baby-naming ceremony. Says author Joan Leegant, Ebenbach takes us deep into the heart of the messy confusion and terror and unfathomable love that make up that shaky state we call parenthood. These stories are fearless, honest and true.
Read information about the authorDavid Ebenbach was born and raised in the great city of Philadelphia, home of America’s first library, first art museum, first public school, and first zoo, along with David’s very first stories and poems, although those early efforts went on to become (deservedly) less famous than, for example, the zoo. Since then he’s lived in Ohio, Wisconsin, Philadelphia again, New York, New Jersey, Indiana, and Ohio again, picking up some education (formal and otherwise) along the way, and he now lives very happily in Washington, DC. He is the author of two collections of fiction (Between Camelots, and Into the Wilderness), two collections of poetry (Autogeography and We Were the People Who Moved), and a non-fiction guide to creativity (The Artist’s Torah)—and look out in 2017, when a first novel and a third story collection will be coming out!
