National Book Award winner Ellen Gilchrist presents readers with ten different scenarios in which people dealing with forces beyond their control somehow manage to survive, persevere, and triumph, even if it is only a triumph of the will. From the very young to the very old, in one way or another, they are fighters and believers, survivors.

Editorial reviews (3 reviews)

Gilchrist excels at telling wonderfully unsentimental, character-driven narratives about the basics.

The stories in “Acts of God” are great postcards from the world of Ellen Gilchrist. It’s a world of war and strife and surprises, and it is, yes, marvelous to behold.

Almost every story is about privileged white people in the American South. The characters are good-hearted people who try to live honorable lives and who struggle to respond with equanimity to events such as Hurricane Katrina and airport lockdowns.
