The Atlantic's December short story, the challenge is to slip fiction into history, and vice versa

Peter Ho Davies
For the past decade, Davies has accumulated degrees -- a B.S. in physics, a B.A. in English, an M.A. in creative writing -- and worked in publishing. In 1995, two years after graduating from Boston University's creative-writing program, Davies's first U.S. publication was selected for the Best American Short Stories collection -- as was another story the following year. He has since published a book of short stories, won an O'Henry Award and an NEA Fellowship (among other prizes), and is now a creative-writing professor at the University of Oregon.
Davies spoke recently with Atlantic Unbound's Katie Bolick.
