Audible Editor Reviews

Madison Smartt Bell's second collection of short fiction showcases his evocative, smart prose full of strange and intriguing characters. Bell, aided by Barbara Dellenback's warm voice and expert performance, brings the listener into the minds of reformed drug addicts, the homeless, and even a mouse in locales as varied as New York, Alabama, London, and the French Riviera.

Barking Man is full of Bell's impressive stylistic flourishes and magnetic narratives, and is an illuminating collection of stories about characters who are broken and beat-down yet still manage to radiate an invigorating, empathetic humanity.

Publisher's Summary

In ten sharply drawn tales, Madison Smartt Bell expands his masterly, inventive, and deftly textured fictional landscape to portray a collection of America's dispossessed characters.
