Ryan Turner’s short stories interrogate the nature of human relationships—between parents and children, siblings, lovers, coworkers, captive and jailer. Setting his characters—their anxieties, triumphs, deceptions, and vulnerabilities—against the backdrop of everyday life, he writes in prose that exhibits complexity without sacrificing the pleasures of narrative. Turner’s uninhibited curiosity fosters a willingness to imagine the discomfort and uncertainty of others, sparking insights into the mechanisms of intimacy and loneliness.
