Set largely in rural Louisiana, Tim Gautreaux's masterful debut story collection follows men and women whose ordinary lives reach a point of rupture, a moment when convention gives way to crisis and everything changes: A drunken train engineer charges toward disaster, a father borrows and old airplane to chase down his daughter's kidnapper, a young man falls in love with a voice on the radio. Written with humor, suspense, and a powerful affection for humanity in all its wild forms, Same Place, Same Things is the first great work by a master of the form.

Praise for Same Place, Same Things

"This man is a wonderful writer. . . . I can honestly say I love to read his stories. He never exaggerates, never manipulates the reader's affections, but nonetheless he always captures the heart."--James Lee Burke

"Moving and memorable . . . The gifted Gautreaux harkens back to the early work of Flannery O'Connor."--Kirkus Reviews
 
"As good as stories get--any stories, in any time or palce . . . Imbued with the cich roux of family, place, race, and religion that is the base of all good Souther fiction."--The Times-Picayune

"Gautreaux is as good a storyteller as just about anyone writing short fiction in America today."--The Boston Phoenix
