All That Glisters and Other Stories By Pat Lynch
Paperback: $12.99
Ships in 3-5 business days
Pat Lynch’s work, with its astute social consciousness and reporter’s sharp eye, tunes us in: to language with its revelations and betrayals, to subtexts, to nuance, to irony. Her... More > characters engage us emotionally; her stories peel away the layers with humor and great humanity. Lynch is funny the way that Lear’s fool is funny: she tells the truth. She is (as the teenage Dustin Blake would say in “Hand-Me-Downs”) a “hella good” writer. —Susan Kelly-DeWitt, author of The Fortunate Islands Pat Lynch’s work is a pleasure, especially if we define pleasure as delivering a world and a sensibility toward it that always rings true. Her most interesting characters are outsiders, people who find ways to live (and sometimes prevail) both inside and on the margins of society. She has a fine ear for their language, and a complicated sympathy for the situations she places them in. —Stephen Dunn, author of nineteen books of poetry and prose, including Different Hours, winner of the Pulitzer Prize< Less

The Striker By Luis L. Tijerina
Paperback: $10.00
Ships in 3-5 business days
Tijerina’s frank portrayal of comradeship caught in the inexorable sweep of war in “Sunrise in East Prussia” glows with an intensity unrivaled in modern literature while his... More > description of the fights between soldiers in “Heat and the Cornfield” can stand next to the great moments in literary history like for instance Hemingway’s “A farewell to arms”. It is the gloriously pragmatic, unpredictable genius of Tijerina’s narrative gifts and his vigorous style that makes these intellectually playful stories - about love and pain, loyalty and desertion but even so about soccer and photography- unforgettable. I think of Tijerina as the great modern descendent of Alberto Moravia. - Michiel Dockx, Master Degree in Economics and Diplomacy from the University of Antwerp Brussels, Belgium< Less
