Details: Nebula-Award-winning writer Leslie What has also won awards for nonfiction and tap dancing while sitting.   Rick Kleffel says about her story collection Crazy Love, a finalist for the Oregon Book Award: “She can hook you with just a few words and after that, you’re on your own in the emotionally vivid worlds she creates. And for all the pain she wrests from her characters and thrusts in your face, for all the vivid anger and wrenching anguish she puts the reader through, there’s a sort of clarity here that’s positively cathartic.”
