Manuel Muñoz’s new collection of short stories, The Consequences, was published in 2022 to rave reviews. As Sandra Cisneros puts it, “Muñoz is a great American writer who sees with his heart . . . . I wish I had written these stories.” He is the author of two previous collections of stories, Zigzagger and The Faith Healer of Olive Avenue, which was shortlisted for the 2007 Frank O’Connor International Short Story Award, and a novel, What You See in the Dark. Muñoz has been recognized with a Whiting Award, three O. Henry Awards, and an appearance in The Best American Short Stories. His frequently anthologized work has appeared in The New York Times, Virginia Quarterly Review, American Short Fiction, ZYZZYVA, and Freeman’s. A native of Dinuba, California, Muñoz lives and works in Tucson.
