david-langlinaisDavid Langlinais is a Dallas author who was born and raised in Abbeville, Louisiana. Duck Thief, his first collection of short stories, is part of the Louisiana Writers Series distributed by the University of Louisiana at Lafayette Press. David’s stories feature characters making sense of their lives in a world where tradition and change exert equal pull.

Duck Thief and Other Stories is a stunning collection by a fine new voice in Southern literature. David Langlinais comes from that great tradition of American storytellers that gave us Ernest Hemingway, Raymond Carver, and Richard Ford. The people who populate his stories are our friends and neighbors, and they live, work, and play where we do. His language is spare and unpretentious, and the rhythms of his prose lead us from moments of simple beauty to profound revelation. Haunting, compassionate, heart-breaking…these are some of the best stories I’ve read in a long time.”

–John Ed Bradley, author of It Never Rains in Tiger Stadium
