Summary

“We’re all broken, and the scars we trade are all that remain of our fragile, once complex lives.”
Losing Found Things is the raw, unforgettable debut collection of fifteen short stories from award-winning writer and novelist Brett Garcia Rose, who takes readers past what lies on the surface and into the darkest corners of human experience.
A young man boards a cruise ship planning to jump, and finds an unlikely ally waiting at the railing. A brother and sister slip away from the moving van waiting in their driveway in order to visit their favorite place one last time. Animal rights workers break into a research facility, but the rescue doesn’t go as planned. A therapist with her own issues answers suspicious questions about a one night stand. An artist tries to hold onto his fragile, impossibly beautiful model girlfriend as fame pulls her away.
Couples watch the gathering twilights of their love, armed men wait in the woods, lonely people disappear in crowded clubs and city streets. This is the stark world of Brett Garcia Rose, who greets readers with his own autobiographical story “The Spoken World,” which has appeared in multiple anthologies, was nominated for both Best of the Net and The Pushcart Prize, and won the Fiction Attic Short Memoir

    	Tonight, Arianna is supposed to undertake the ritual that will turn her from girl to woman. But on the eve of this most important night of her life, Arianna is uncertain.

    This early work by Wilkie Collins was originally published in 1873. Born in Marylebone, London in 1824, Collins' family enrolled him at the Maida Hill Academy in 1835, but then took him to France and Italy with them between 1836 and 1838. Returning to England, Collins attended Cole's boarding school, and completed his education in 1841, after which he was apprenticed to the tea merchants Antrobus & Co. in the Strand. In 1846, Collins became a law student at Lincoln's Inn, and was called to the bar in 1851, although he never practiced. It was in 1848, a year after the death of his father, that he published his first book, The Memoirs of the Life of William Collins, Esq., R.A., to good reviews. The 1860s saw Collins' creative high-point, and it was during this decade that he achieved fame and critical acclaim, with his four major novels, The Woman in White (1860), No Name (1862), Armadale (1866) and The Moonstone (1868). The Moonstone, meanwhile is seen by many as the first true detective novel – T. S. Eliot called it "the first, the longest, and the best of modern English detective novels...in a genre invented by Collins and not by Poe.” Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900's and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions.
