El Paso del Norte: Stories on the Border (Western Literature Series)

Book DescriptionThe Chicano characters in Richard Yanez's debut story collection live in El Paso's Lower Valley but inhabit a number of borders--between two countries, two languages, and two cultures, between childhood and manhood, life and death. The teenaged narrator of "Desert Vista" copes with a new school and a first love while negotiating the boundaries between his family's tenuous middle-class status and the working-class community in which they have come to live. Tony Amoroza, the protagonist of "Amoroza Tires," wrestles with the overwhelming grief from his wife's death until an unexpected legacy prompts him with new faith. Maria del Valle, "La Loquita," the central character of "Lucero's Mkt.," crosses the border into madness while herneighbors watch, gossip, and try to offer--or refuse--aid. Yanez writes with perfect understanding of his borderland setting, a landscape where poverty and violence impinge on traditional Mexican-American values, where the...

Percival Everett

Damned If I Do : Stories

Book Description An exceptional new collection of short stories by Percival Everett, author of the highly praised and wickedly funny novel Erasure People are just naturally hopeful, a term my grandfather used to tell me was more thanoccasionally interchangeable with stupid. A cop, a cowboy, several fly fishermen, and a reluctant romance novelist inhabit these revealing and often hilarious stories. An old man ends up in a high-speed car chase with the cops after stealing the car that blocks the garbage bin at his apartment building. A stranger gets a job at a sandwich shop and fixes everything in sight: a manual mustard dispenser, a mouthful of crooked teeth, thirty-two parking tickets, and a sexual-identity problem. Percival Everett is a master storyteller who ingeniously addresses issues of race and prejudice by simultaneously satirizing and celebrating the human condition.

Catherine Tudish

Tenney's Landing : Stories

Book Description These deeply empathic and beautifully crafted stories explore the interwoven lives and histories of the people of Tenney's Landing, a small Pennsylvania river town. Catherine Tudish has assembled an array of richly textured characters whose paths intersect in ways both incidental and intimate as they learn that their capacity for hope and forgiveness is greater than they thought. In "Where the Devil Lost His Blanket," Elizabeth Tenney embarks on an unexpected journey to return the remains of her recently deceased neighbor, a woman she barely knew, to South America. "The Dowry" portrays a woman, who, faced with her father's fatal illness, finds herself confronting the tragedy and betrayal that drove her from home. The title character of "Jordan's Stand," a gruff old farmer, forms an unlikely friendship with a young widow as he tries to teach her how to hunt. In "The Springhouse," a woman finds the strength to leave her husband and return to her parents'...

Sorry I Worried You (Flannery O'Connor Award for Short Fiction)

Book DescriptionIn these twelve intelligent tales, seasoned poet and story writer Gary Fincke reconciles lost hope and quiet despair with small blessings and ultimate redemption. In his world, as easily as one man becomes a hero, another is riddled with failure. Fincke weaves together the large and small tragedies of daily life to create an inescapable, yet at times oddly comforting, reality. His characters inhabit a world of strip malls and fast-food joints, low-down jobs and physical ailments, lottery tickets and cheap beer. Here, everyone and everything is suspicious, and only the luck of the draw determines who, if anyone, will survive. In the title story, Ben, a fifty-year-old bookstore clerk facing the possibility of prostate cancer, feels his life spiraling out of control as he endures his female doctor's examinations with childlike embarrassment on the one hand and struggles to conceal his age from his teenybopper coworkers on the other. Ben's only consolation is that...

Black Artemis

Picture Me Rollin'

Book DescriptionIn this hardcore novel of love and betrayal, a female ex-con moved by the power, poetry, and dangerous passion of Tupac Shakur has plans to play it straight and do the right thing for her future survival. But her lover Jesus, the man she went to prison for on a gun possession charge, is intent on bringing her back into his game. She finds herself caught between inescapable yet contradictory forces-the passion for the streets and the inspiration of her conscience, just like her idol Pac. With righteous anger to burn, she's got to pull her life together before it's too late.

Death Row Follies and Other Stories

This exquisite book contains five stories. 1. "Byron" was commissioned by Ed Gorman, premier editor of mystery fiction, and included in his hardcover anthology "Cat Crimes Through Time." It describes the adventures of a mysterious English lady who shows up in the Beirut of 1958 in search of her militiaman husband who, Israel's Mossad thinks, had been kidnapped by a rival group. 2. "The Cheat" follows the coming of age of some high school students in the suburbs of Paris. Their devoted teacher must decide whether to leave their petty problems for a few days of deserved rest in Spain. Feels like a small foreign film. 3. "The Inquisition" is the name of a California-style rock club full of groupies, grunge, mosh pits and drugs. It's a love story between Rayne, at one time the female star singer in the band Pandemonium and Pep, the male singer of the group. Addicted and pregnant, Rayne goes away to get help. As she returns to see if Pep still wants her, she must confront danger in...

Thomas Mann

Death in Venice And Other Stories

Gustav von Aschenbach, a successful ageing writer, travels to Venice for a holiday. One day, at dinner in his hotel, Aschenbach notices an exceptionally beautiful young boy. Soon his days begin to revolve around seeing this boy and he is too distracted to pay attention to the ominous rumours that have begun to circulate about disease spreading through the city. Italian director Luchino Visconti also wrote the screenplay for his 1971 adaptation of Mann's novella. Dirk Bogarde considered retiring after playing the part of Aschenbach, believing he could never hope to give a better performance in a better film.

Labor Days : An Anthology of Fiction About Work

Book DescriptionIn this superb and subversive collection, the finest fiction writers capture the full experience of showing up, clocking in, and working it. Denis Johnson’s “Emergency” is set in a Vietnam-era emergency room, where stoned orderlies deal matter-of-factly with a guy who has a knife stuck in his head. In Raymond Carver’s “Fat,” a waitress recounts how attending to an overweight customer inspired her life-altering speculations on consumption, deprivation, pleasure, and neglect. Excerpts from longer works–Richard Ford’s Independence Day, whose hero, real estate agent Frank Bascombe, is a case study in suburban angst; Ralph Ellison’s Invisible Man and its earnest considerations of race and unionism–and short stories such as “Pastoralia,” George Saunders’s manic tale of a prehistoric theme park in which actors don pelts and grunt for disaffected spectators, all express what can be absurd,...
