Bookslinger Update: “Telephone Call”

The Bookslinger app has been updated with a new story!

9781938160240This week’s story comes from Jewelry Box: A Collection of Histories, by Aurelie Sheehan, published by BOA Editions Ltd. Straddling memoir and fiction, these 68 short works explore the nuances of sexuality, motherhood, love, ambition, and personal history. Like Lydia Davis, Aurelie Sheehan’s stories are potent miniatures that blossom out from seemingly insignificant encounters and objects. Jewelry Box is a collection of intimate renderings of the life that surrounds us, just under the surface.

Bookslinger Update: “Paints and Papers”

The Bookslinger app has been updated with a new story!

This week’s story is from Innocent Party by Aimee Parkison, published by BOA Editions, Ltd. In this collection, Kurt Vonnegut Fiction Prize–winner Aimee Parkison’s characters struggle to understand what happens when the innocent party becomes the guilty party. With magical realist flair, secrets are aired with dirty laundry, but the stains never come clean. Carol Anshaw writes, “Aimee Parkison offers a distinct new voice to contemporary fiction. Her seductive stories explore childhood as a realm of sorrows, and reveal the afflictions of adults who emerge from this private geography.”

Bookslinger Update: “When the World Broke”

The Bookslinger app has been updated with a new story!

This week’s story is from The Era of Not Quite by Douglas Watson, published by BOA Editions, Ltd. Douglas Watson’s debut story collection is chock-a-block with deaths, births, sea and land voyages, excursions to the library, philosophical asides, and things like wolves. People fall in and out of love, walk in and out of buildings, take two steps forward and two steps back. Futility is a theme of the book, but so is the necessity of trying.
