In these four stories and a novella, Tracy Daugherty focuses on unresolved conflicts among family and friends. In Late in the Standoff, the stories ask, “What are the limits of intimacy? How can we really know each other? What happens when the lines between deception and honesty become blurred?” The standoffs in Daugherty’s third collection vividly demonstrate that even politics is a kind of family squabble whose elusive solutions often come from unexpected quarters.


“Tracy Daugherty’s distinctive and highly recommended fiction draws from the cultural and social forces that shape and influence the intimate behavior of otherwise ordinary people.” —Midwest Book Review
