Enter the worlds of fifteen young women each navigating unavoidably dangerous emotional terrain in Amanda Davis' new collection of stories Circling the Drain (Morrow, William & Co.).

Here, Davis reads the story "Faith, or Tips for the Successful Young Lady."

"Amanda Davis writes gently, even poetically, about extraordinary brutality. She has a distinctively creepy, noirish sensibility... a well-guided tour of scarred souls who've witnessed terrible things, and surprisingly, found odd bits of beauty in them." -The New York Times Book Review
