Loners By Mark SaFranko
Paperback: $19.70
Prints in 3-5 business days
Murderers and serial killers...Jilted lovers and outcasts... Broken men and lost women.... Loners. Cutting across genres for more than 20 years, Mark SaFranko has excelled in charting the life of... More > the outsider. This collection includes nine of SaFranko's stories... all shot through with his trademark realism. 'New York Times' bestselling crime author Seymour Shubin ['Anyone's My Name'] introduces the stories, hailing Loners as "a collection of brilliant short stories that had me twisting inwardly as I read them...They are magnificent." Mark SaFranko's tales will appeal to fans of the first-person realism of Fante and Bukowksi, while the spiralling effects of being an outsider have drawn comparisons to Harry Crews ['The Gospel Singer'] and Chester Himes ['A Rage In Harlem']. Some of the stories will shock ["Just Next Door"], some will thrill ["Alley Night"], some will provoke thought ["Life Change"] but all have the page-turning energy of writers such as Joe R. Lansdale ['Mucho Mojo'].< Less

"Dirty Work" is the fourth of Mark SaFranko's series of Max Zajack novels and follows the critically acclaimed "Hating Olivia," "Lounge Lizard" and "God Bless... More > America." "Dirty Work" is the bridge between "God Bless America" and "Hating Olivia." Max has left school and is searching for a steady job that gives him enough sanity to survive...and enough free time to write. Drawing comparisons to both "Factotum" and "Death on the Installment Plan", the novel charts Max's struggles to make cash and become a great artist. As he writes: "How often does a man love what he’s doing? Once or twice in a lifetime if he’s lucky. For the artist it’s more complicated. He’s absorbed in himself, in his own inner machinery. The external world, the realm of dollars and cents, isn’t usually of much interest to him....I didn’t know what I was. But was I an artist? Where was the evidence? Right then and there I should have gotten up and walked out. But I didn’t. When I suffered, I tended to stay put and suffer more."< Less
Blossoms And Blood By Mark SaFranko
Paperback: $12.10
Prints in 3-5 business days
“In class the nuns hinted at the same thing. What we learned from the Baltimore Catechism was that ‘self-gratification,’ whatever that meant, exactly, was a sin against the sixth... More > commandment, ‘Thou shalt not commit adultery,’ and the tenth commandment, ‘Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s wife.’ It was in fact, one of the deadly, cardinal sins: LUST. I tried with all my strength to not give in to temptation, but failed again and again. “This went to prove that I was weak.” --- Foreshadowing the turmoil of Hating Olivia, Max Zajack is in love with the wrong female yet again. This time, however, he’s only twelve years old and he has to contend with the additional challenges of confrontational parents, Catholic guilt and the looming threat of adulthood. “Every kid feels it, every kid knows it, so the story shakes us and sends us straight back into the arms of an irreversible nostalgia - and that’s why Mark SaFranko is a great American writer.” --- Tom Buron, introduction to ‘Blossoms and Blood’< Less
