Book Synopsis Turbo's Very Life and Other Stories by : Carroll Dale Short
Download or read book Turbo's Very Life and Other Stories written by Carroll Dale Short and published by NewSouth Books. This book was released on 2005-01-01 with total page 210 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In the eighteen stories in this retrospective of his best short fiction, Dale Short shows why he is one of the best prose stylists of his generation and why he deserves a break-out success. Short's writing has been hailed by Wally Lamb as "simultaneously mythical and modern; a wild ride," and Dennis Covington has called him "wise and compassionate, a major Southern writer." He writes here from many perspectives--male, female, first-person, third-person, grieving widow, newly divorced dad, jailed redneck, riverman laid up with heart trouble, conjure woman--and in every story the voice is as true as that of a child and as clear as fresh ice. The marvel of Short's prose is that the writing is so good it disappears, leaving the reader surrounded only by the story, which resonates long after the last word is absorbed. The other remarkable thing is how Short can go from comedy to tragedy within a single paragraph, sometimes within a single sentence, and then back again. His timelines here range from the Civil War to the near future, and the locales vary from a Kentucky mining town to the Gulf Coast of Mexico to the constellation Orion--all in all, a rare feast for the imagination. Stories that have appeared before only in magazines, this collection charts more than two decades of the growth and exploration of an author who won the first Redbook Fiction Prize at the age of twenty-seven, and whose acclaimed novel The Shining Shining Path was called by reviewers "Southern magical realism" and praised by Publishers Weekly as "boldly imaginative; a provocative spiritual odyssey." Publishers Weekly added, "Short takes risks in a single paragraph that many writers never attempt in an entire novel."
Book Synopsis Summer Vacation and Other Stories by : Theodore Kohan
Download or read book Summer Vacation and Other Stories written by Theodore Kohan and published by AuthorHouse. This book was released on 2007-09-27 with total page 360 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Male-female relationships are at the center of this collection of thirteen stories. Roughly half the stories take place in the United States and half in Chile. A common thread runs through these keenly sensitive stories: the women take the initiative, and the men, willingly or unwillingly, follow their lead. At one end of the spectrum, Ari, 14 years old, is awakening to his sexuality, and at the other, Al, almost 70 and a former college professor, sees a potential affair with a young woman as his last opportunity to indulge his taste for sexual mischief. Along the way we also meet Dora, a free-spirited woman who, thirty years earlier, was in hot pursuit of Sergio, a married man, but who now holds a secret he is determined to uncover; Josh, home for the summer after having completed his freshman year in college, who is torn between family expectations and his attraction for Sofia, a Colombian immigrant; and a gallery of other unique characters.

Book Synopsis The Race and Other Stories by Sinclair Ross by : Sinclair Ross
Download or read book The Race and Other Stories by Sinclair Ross written by Sinclair Ross and published by University of Ottawa Press. This book was released on 1978-01-01 with total page 136 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Heralded as a prairie writer and best known for As For Me and My House and for his stories of the bleak dust bowl Prairies of the Great Depression, Sinclair Ross has also written of urban life and, briefly, of army life, as the stories in this collection demonstrate. The Race and Other Stories includes previously uncollected short stories and a chapter from Whir of Gold, here title "The Race," which stands on its own as a short story. Furthermore, "Spike," published in French in Liberté in 1969, appears here for the first time in English. Ross's taut, economical, rhythmic prose reflects the bleak, spare landscape of the prairie. The concerns of his novels are equally evident in his stories: loneliness and alienation, the sense of entrapment, the imaginative and artistic struggle. This collection of stories will be of interest to those who wish to better understand one of Canada's most respected writers and the diversity that can be found in his writings.
Book Synopsis Red Cavalry and Other Stories by : Isaac Babel
Download or read book Red Cavalry and Other Stories written by Isaac Babel and published by Penguin UK. This book was released on 2005-07-07 with total page 400 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Throughout his life Isaac Babel was torn by opposing forces, by the desire both to remain faithful to his Jewish roots and yet to be free of them. This duality of vision infuses his work with a powerful energy from the earliest tales including 'Old Shloyme' and 'Childhood', which affirm his Russian-Jewish childhood, to the relatively non-Jewish world of his collection of stories entitled 'Red Cavalry'. Babel's masterpiece, 'Red Cavalry' is the most dramatic expression of his dualism and in his simultaneous acceptance and rejection of his heritage heralds the great American-Jewish writers from Henry Roth to Saul Bellow and Philip Roth.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The stories in this book pertain to the wars, which India has fought since its Independence in 1962, 65, 71 and 99. The war stories have always aroused the curiosity of the readers. Although many books have been written on conflicts between India and its neighbours, no author has attempted to write stories. This book is therefore unique, the only one of its kind, a book of fiction on events and characters, in the background of war. The wars have topical interest and as time passes, one forgets them and gets engrossed in current issues. This is natural. However, certain events such as missile attack on Karachi, shattering of enemy offensive by Hunter aircraft at Longewala, the role played by the aircraft carrier INS VIKRANT and the heroics of men in uniform have a lasting value, an element of permanence. These stories provide insight into ethos, culture and lifestyle of the armed forces, their values, hardships and character. The stories narrate the account of war and unfold its conduct in easy and interesting manner. The stories have been written in simple and endearing style. It is a book, which ought to be read by all, the old and young.
