“One of the things that has so impressed this department about his stories, besides the quality of the telling, is that they embody the meaningfulness of life by taking seriously, without the imposition of an ideological bias, the predicaments in which people find themselves, even when those predicaments could invite ridicule,” said Dr. David Havird, Professor of English. “To put the matter a little differently, there is the stories’ infinite inventiveness, itself a manifestation of the author’s empathetic curiosity about the lives of others—his profound appreciation of the ambivalences that people wrestle with—and the complementary conviction that those lives signify.”

Bausch is the author of eleven novels and eight collections of stories, including the novels Rebel Powers, In The Night Season, Hello To The Cannibals, and Peace and the story collections Spirits, Rare & Endangered Species, The Stories of Richard Bausch, and the recently released Something Is Out There. His novel The Last Good Time was made into a feature-length motion picture, released in April 1995.

Bausch’s stories have appeared in The Atlantic Monthly, Esquire, The New Yorker, The Southern Review, The Best American Short Stories, O. Henry Prize Stories, and The Pushcart Prize Stories. His stories have also been widely anthologized. The Modern Library published The Selected Stories of Richard Bausch in March 1996.
