Abstract/Description: Woman by the Water and Other Stories is a collection of four short stories that range in setting from a touristy beach town in the Florida Gulf to a party school in northern Appalachia, and from old-fashioned Midwestern suburbia to a farming homestead in pre-Depression era Iowa. The common thread among them is that each story is narrated by a young woman who is embroiled in a dilemma that usually ends up being largely by her own making. Furthermore, the style of each story relies heavily on its narrative voice and point of view. I believe that my work fits in to the larger dialogue of contemporary women's literature that places value on story-telling, familial and relationship issues, self-identity and, ultimately, raw narrative honesty, even if it traditionally may seem "unbecoming" for female characters.
