Our very own Anthony Varallo has been announced as the winner of the 2005 Iowa Short Fiction Award for his debut collection of short stories, This Day in History. The University of Iowa Press will publish the collection, which will be available in September. Varallo, officially an “editorial assistant” here at the Review and unofficially an anchor of our staff for the past four years, is finishing his Ph.D. in English and creative writing at the University of Missouri-Columbia. His stories have appeared in, among other places, Indiana Review, Crazyhorse, Black Warrior Review, Gulf Coast, Mississippi Review, Harvard Review, Mid-Amerian Review, and Sun. A native of Delaware and a recipient of a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts, he’s also a life-long Philadelphia Eagles fan who is desperately praying for another shot at the Super Bowl.
