Eva Crocker 2017 Dayne Ogilvie Prize finalist

Eva Crocker

Jury Citation 

Eva Crocker brings to her first collection of stories the verve and self-assurance of a literary veteran. She chronicles emotional nuance with ease and brings her characters to life with an inventive, multilayered lens that mirrors so many of today’s interpersonal relationships. Crocker’s prose enlightens readers by securing and subverting narratives and her portrayals find meaning in both the unusual and the mundane.
