A Destroyer of Compasses (Prose)

Book DescriptionSometimes lyrical, sometimes tough, these stories deal with the foibles and frailties of acutely drawn characters pursuing freedom, love, beauty and adventure amidst the stark realities of life, whether at the end of a dictatorship in Spain, on an exotic Mediterranean island or as a Spanish bride-to-be first encountering Canada. Frank, provocative and haunting, these pieces range from dark comedy to quirky, uncertain romance to edgy thriller. The writing is vivid, sensual and contemporary.

The Insomniac Reader : Stories of the Night

Book DescriptionPeople behave differently at night: feelings of desperation, violence, melancholy surface; nocturnal hunts for adventure, sex, drugs transpire; prowling through shadows, throwing corporeal flesh recklessly at . . . anything. The InsomniacReader examines the dark side (literally and figuratively) of evening, from prostitution and adultery to emergency rooms and suicide. "So I was thrust into that twilight realm, that modern undeath," writes Jonathan Lethem about being put on hold in "CallWaiting," a deceptively simple story about two guys whose late night phone calls are interrupted by a mysterious young woman. In "Everybody Dies in Memphis," critically acclaimed author Jonathan Ames experiences the twisted underbelly of both the city and professional boxing as he covers the media-hyped Tyson-Lewis heavyweight bout for New York Press. This entertaining anthology features some of the best-known contemporary American authors shining their literary flashlights into a...

Lori L. Lake

Stepping Out: Short Stories

Book DescriptionIn these 14 short stories, Lori L. Lake captures how change and loss influence the course of lives: a mother and daughter have an age-old fight; a frightened woman attempts to deal with an abusive lover; a father tries to understand his lesbian daughter?s retreat from him; an athlete who misses her chance?or does she? Lovingly crafted, the collection has been described as a series of mini-novels where themes of alienation and loss, particularly for characters who are gay or lesbian, are woven throughout. Lake is right on about the anguish and confusion of characters caught in the middle of circumstances, usually of someone else?s making. Still, each character steps out with hope and determination. In the words of Jean Stewart: "Beyond the mechanics of good storytelling, a sturdy vulnerability surfaces in every one of these short stories. Lori Lake must possess, simply as part of her inherent nature, a loving heart. It gleams out from these...

Aaron Gwyn

Dog on the Cross : Stories

Book DescriptionThe focus of this striking and intense collection of stories is a small Pentecostal community in Oklahoma struggling with faith and lapses into sin during the week that a fifteen-year-old faith healer comes to town. From a preacherwho loses his ability to speak in tongues and begins to fake it; to a man intent on suppressing his sinful love of his best friend even as he can think of nothing else; to a teenage boy who struggles with the temptation of a young girl; to a grandmother who will stop at nothing to make her grandson famous; their stories and others compose the debut collection of a young and original writer. In his careful articulation of faith and doubt, sin and self-delusion, allegiance to the church and self-aggrandization, Gwyn--raised Pentecostal by his grandparents--crafts stories that he is uniquely qualified to tell. We're pleased to be launching the career of one of the most distinctive new voices on the literary landscape.

In the collection’s final stories, Danny begins his tenure as Professor Smiricky at a Canadian university and attempts to come to terms with the politically innocent and self-centered youth that flock to his courses.
