In this powerful collection set in Spain, Africa, and North America, populated by wild dogs, tattoo artists, and lost boys, Patrick Roscoe’s characters- lonely, damaged, nomadic- are outsiders in an often brutal and punishing world. In Roscoe’s beguiling laboratory, science meets emotion in experiments that attempt to decipher the forces of love, loss, and longing.

Bookslinger Update: “Seven Clues”

The Bookslinger app has been updated with a new story!

9781933527772This week’s story comes from Widow’s Dozen by Marek Waldorf, published by Turtle Point Press. In a New York State town submitting to endless summer Waldorf delivers a Widow’s Dozen of lyrical and poignant tales. Subtle lives—nostalgia lit, lovingly textured—bridge currents in catastrophe from impossible to remote to inevitable. A paean to Cheever’s lost world before the storm: “the illusion of a country divided evenly between the lights of catastrophe and repose.”
