Share this story with your world:

M.O. Walsh, author of THE BIG DOOR PRIZE (Putnam), will be in conversation with David West Read at a virtual event hosted by Books Are Magic via Zoom on Thursday, September 17 at 7:00 pm (ET).

The New York Times bestselling author of My Sunshine Away returns with a gripping and heartfelt novel about a mysterious machine that upends a small Louisiana town, asking us all to wonder if who we truly are is who we truly could be.

Written with linguistic grace and a sense of wonder, THE BIG DOOR PRIZE sparkles with keen observations about what it might mean to stay true to oneself while honoring the bonds of marriage, friendship, and community, and how the glimmer of possibility can pull these bonds apart, bring them back together, and make second chances possible, even under the strangest of circumstances.

Walsh’s fiction and essays have appeared in The New York Times, Oxford American, The Southern Review, American Short Fiction, Epoch, and Best New American Voices, among others. He is a graduate of the MFA program at the University of Mississippi and is currently the director of the Creative Writing Workshop at the University of New Orleans, where he lives and works, happily, with his wife and family.
