Congratulations to last year’s Bayou Fiction Contest Judge, Marcy Dermansky, whose new novel, Very Nice, is the talk of the town. A starred review from Publisher’s Weekly says, “Her sharp satire spares none of the characters and teeters brilliantly on the edge of comedy and tragedy.”

We hope you’ll enjoy this interview that Bayou Magazine did with her last year.
