"Johnson zeros-in on just the right details to make these pieces work. She’s able to create rich subtext in few words, which makes each story complicated and true, and makes each character feel alive and familiar. Of any new book that I’ve read this year, One of These Things Is Not Like the Others is the one I’ll return to, one that will reveal itself a little more with each read."

Thank you for joining us at Ustream for the first two readings. Just a quick reminder: this evening is our third and final reading.
Matt Bell, author of How the Broken Lead the Blind, The Collectors, and the forthcoming How They Were Found (from Keyhole Press) will be joining us as a special guest reader. I'm knocked out by Matt's stories and his careful eye for detail, so it's an understatement to say I'm beyond excited to hear him read.

Praise for One of These Things Is Not Like the Others
“There is, in Stephanie Johnson’s stories, a profound, unflashy magic of seeing. She puts you right up to the beating hearts of her people—from which vantage, you see how they miss one another, and you understand as odd, perfect miracles their moments of connection and knowledge.”—Scott Garson, author of American Gymnopédies
“Stephanie Johnson is a great writer, and I'm consistently impressed by how her quiet, unassuming characters manage to sneak past my defenses to blow me away, story after story.—Matt Bell, author of The Collectors and How the Broken Lead the Blind
“Stephanie Johnson’s fiction—like Raymond Carver’s—celebrates the idea that less, on the page, can be more: her stories are at once lean and rich, poignant and wry, insightful and evocative. An impressive debut.”—Jessica Treadway, author of And Give You Peace and Absent Without Leave
“Stephanie Johnson can accomplish in five hundred words what some writers can only do in five thousand: a complete arc of narrative with compelling characters struggling through the web of human frailties, entangled in passion and dependancy, love and betrayal, insight and ignorance.”—Jeff McMahon, Editor of Contrary
