David Rice

Emerging writer David Rice maintains a skillful balance of humor and sensitivity in Give the Pig a Chance. The title story, in which two estranged cousins are reunited after the accidental death of a beloved pot-bellied pig, displays Rice's knack for combining the ridiculous with pathos. Most of the stories are set in the lower Rio Grande Valley of Texas.

". . . his Edcouch comes alive as a setting, and it'll be interesting to see where the author's future work takes him. One could conceive of his finding a comfortable niche in the pages of Chicano literature in the years to come." - Kirkus Reviews
