Fieldale Native Ted Gilley

Ted Gilley's BlissHad he not moved to New England, Ted Gilley would have been a member of the Class of 1967 at Fieldale Collinsville High School. His last year at Fieldale High School was 1965. Now Ted resides in Vermont and is a freelance writer and editor.

His short fiction and poetry have appeared in such publications as New England Review, Northwest Review, Prairie Schooner, and many other magazines and anthologies. He is a winner of the Prairie Schooner Book Prize in Fiction.

Bliss and Other Short Stories is his latest book. It is a collection of 9 stories and introduces readers to an edgy vision and a world in which certainties are tested and found wanting. A Cambodian refugee negotiates the icy waters of American social and sexual life. A young couple seeks "peak experiences" to escape grief, only to discover that they've brought it along with them. A teenage girl, unable to face the imminent end of her grandfather's life, risks her own life in an impulsive act. A man's fragile hold on reality becomes the key to his finding, albeit through a terrifying labyrinth, his heart's desire. The characters in Bliss and Other Short Stories must find their way to a truth that, though less than perfect, is one they can live with. Finding bliss, it seems, is as much about pain as about pleasure, and in Ted Gilley’s writing the discovery is always exquisite.
