4. Contrivances (Large Print 16pt) - David Balzer

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

This debut collection of stories - featuring a talk - show host and her talking hand, a women's activity group that writes to prisoners, and a poncho - making nudist - is as unique as it is compelling. Set in their own melodramatic worlds, the stories take inspiration from Old Hollywood, Gothic novels, art - world gossip, and maybe a Lifetime movie or two. Balzer's observations are as sharp as Flaubert's, and his characters are drawn with the complexity of George Saunders (and the wit of George Sanders). Beautifully illustrated throughout, Contrivances proves that tragedy is comedy when you play with it long enough.

5. The Heyday of the Insensitive Bastards Stories - Robert Boswell

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 25.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Robert Boswell's extraordinary range grips us at full tilt in this crackling new collection. Set mainly in small, gritty American cities, each of these stories is a world unto itself. When two marriages end, one by death, the other divorce, the two wives, lifelong friends, become strangers to one another. A young man's obsession with visiting a fortune-teller leaves him nearly homeless. And in the unforgettable title story, a man recounts the summer he spent on a mountain with a loose band of slackers, living in a borrowed house, abstaining from all drugs (other than mushrooms and beer) - and ultimately asking just what kind of harm we can do to one another. Boswell's unexpectedly affecting characters and exuberant prose make The Heyday of the Insensitive Bastards a book to celebrate.....ROBERT BOSWELL is the author of five novels, most recently Century's Son; two previous short-story collections; and a collection of essays, The Half-Known World: On Writing Fiction. He teaches creative writing at New Mexico State University, the University of Houston, and in the Warren Wilson College MFA Program.
