Scott Russell Sanders

Scott Russell Sanders is the author of Small Marvels (June 2022; Indiana University Press), a novel-in-stories that employs all the unifying techniques discussed here, and more. Set in an Indiana town where peculiar things happen, the book features three generations of a boisterous family who live together in patched-up house, where they get by on scant income and abundant love. Part folktale, part tall tale, part comic romance, Small Marvels revels in the wonders of everyday life. This is the latest of more than 20 books of fiction, essays, and personal narrative by Sanders, a Distinguished Professor Emeritus of English at Indiana University and a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. You can visit him online at
