Chris Murphy's Burning All the Time is full of beautiful, unexpected stories of Oklahoma and people who share a wry sense of compassion and longing, love and forgiveness. Murphy writes with sharp prose and a kind of intellectual depth so few writers can create. It's a charming, wonderfully crafted collection. I loved it.

—Brandon Hobson, National Book Award finalist and author of The Removed

What a knockout collection this is. Christopher Murphy knows the secret heart of eastern Oklahoma and renders it in ways compelling, mysterious, hilarious, and humane. A mashup of acutely observed realist detail and rich imaginings, these works of flash fiction combine to forge a narrative portrait that resonates long after the reading’s done.
