About the Author
R.P. Munda studies political theory at Princeton. She hails from a rural part of North Carolina that does not have stoplights or road signs. Her story first appeared in the Nassau Literary Review.
Fiction judge Lydia Davis admired “The Bro” she said, for “the convincing character Ellen, the compassion of the narrator’s relation to his father, the complicated life situation not over-explained, and the serious issues raised in a controlled and subtle manner.”
