Williams is the author of four novels, five story collections, and one essay collection. Her novel “The Quick and the Dead” was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize, and “State of Grace” received a nomination for the National Book Award. “Ill Nature,” a collection of essays, was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award. Her most recent book is “The Visiting Privilege: New and Collected Stories,” which includes two stories first published in The Idaho Review.
