Nick Ripatrazone


Nick Ripatrazone’s newest book, Good People, a collection of short stories, is now available from Foxhead Books. "Wildly diverse and with stunning emotional range, these are fascinating stories that can alternately chill, entertain, and break one's heart.” -- Ron Hansen

Nick’s other books include two novellas,
This Darksome Burn (Queen’s Ferry Press) and We Will Listen For You (CCM Press 2014), a book of literary criticism, The Fine Delight: Postconciliar Catholic Literature (Cascade Books 2013), and two books of poetry, This Is Not About Birds (Gold Wake Press 2012) and Oblations (Gold Wake Press 2011). He is a staff writer for The Millions.

His recent essay, “
55 Thoughts for English Teachers,” has been widely praised. He appeared on New Hampshire Public Radio’s “Word of Mouth” program to discuss the essay.
