Most of the stories in author Maile Meloy's debut collection are set in the American West and explore grand themes such as life, death, alienation, and the dynamics of human relationships through the eyes and actions of realistic, believable characters. Maile says that she chose the short-story genre because it provided an efficient way to let her often-tragic yet hopeful scenarios come to life on the page. A recipient of the 2001 Aga Khan Prize for Fiction, Maile has also been published in the ‘Paris Review,' ‘Ploughshares,' and the ‘New Yorker.' She is scheduled to release her first novel in summer 2003.

My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! Can’t imagine life without it! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link :) Best of luck to you and your family!
