Debut collection of short stories by indie Australian author Morgan Bell. A cross-section between dreams and reality. An examination of the horrors of life, with plenty of peering, in the form of vignettes, micro fiction, flash fiction, and short stories. Themes include fear, time, aging, anxiety, and jealousy. This collection of 15 stories contains bizarre medical conditions, industrious creatures, conniving cops, killers, dead bodies, a rescue mission, homoeroticism, nonchalant students, a secret garden, and the road to hell.
"Intelligent set of stories"
The South. From the bottom of Missouri on down, and, uh, to the right, there lies a huge swath of territory that's all different, but the same enough to fiercely deny that Texas and Florida are part of it. On this episode of Sounds Like America, host Roy Wood Jr. (The Daily Show) kicks off our tour of the dirty South. You'll hear stand-up comedy, music, and on-the-street interviews that capture a slice of what life is like below the Mason-Dixon line.
