The Habit of Art

Best Stories from the Indiana University Fiction Workshop

"The scientist has the habit of science; the artist, the habit of art." —Flannery O'Connor

This collection of stories contains some of the best new short fiction from America. The stories display a wide range of styles, settings, and themes. In addition to being among the country's most talented, prize-winning writers, the authors gathered in The Habit of Art also share a common bond as former members of the fiction workshop at Indiana University, which celebrates its first 25 years with the publication of this book.

About the Author

Tony Ardizzone is author of seven books of fiction, including In the Garden of Papa Santuzzu; Taking It Home: Stories from the Neighborhood; Larabi's Ox: Stories of Morocco; and the recently completed novel The Whale Chaser. His writing has received the Flannery O'Connor Award for Short Fiction, and other honors. He is director of the creative writing program at Indiana University and lives in Bloomington, Indiana.


"The authors brazenly embrace intimacy and repulsion with alluring ease. Daring is the best description of the collection; engaging is the best reason for them to be read and shared. February 2, 2006"—NUVO
