Local author Anthony Doerr is quick to smile, but his eyes are usually thoughtful. Currently, that serious look may be due to the gravitas behind some big news: Doerr has won the 2011 Sunday Times EFG Private Bank Short Story Award for his story, The Deep. The award comes with a cash prize of roughly $49,000.
Click here to read our recent Citizen interview with Doerr and here to read The Sunday Times article. Doerr's story was published, in full, in the Sunday Times, and at some point may be available on the paper's website, but it and any excerpts are currently behind a paywall.
