From the Publisher:
Three works from one of the most original and universally praised American writers of this century. Love and torment, lunacy and desire, tenderness and war--these stories provide a brilliant, dazzling odyssey into American life. No one but Barry Hannah could create these vivid worlds with such poetic detail.
Annotation:
A collection of short stories by the Southern writer whose prior works have established him as a comic genius whose satires are on a par with Waugh's and Flannery O'Connor's.
Author Bio
Barry Hannah
Hannah received his B.A. from Mississippi College in 1964. In 1966 and 1967, he earned an M.A. and M.F.A. in creative writing from the University of Arkansas. He taught at Clemson University in South Carolina until his first novel, "Geronimo Rex", was published (1972), winning the William Faulkner Prize and a nomination for the National Book Award. After a rambling life as a writer and teacher in South Carolina, Vermont, Hollywood, and Iowa--among other places--Hannah settled in Oxford, Mississippi, Faulkner's home town. He has taught writing at the University of Mississippi. Hannah spent much of his adult life struggling with alcoholism, which got him into several well-publicized scrapes, until the early '90s, when he stopped drinking entirely. He has two sons and a daughter, and he travels frequently to France, where he has a devoted following.

Praise

New York Times Book Review
"A dense, dark, spark-shooting new story collection...the best are as good as they come....Risky, inventive, comic with gothic overtones...." - Shelby Hearon 3/7/93

Nation
"There are a thousand discoveries at hand in any book by Barry Hannah, not the least of which are the noble and amazing tricks he can perform with language." - Marianne Wiggins 6/7/93
