Radley came to his senses and said, "Didn't you say that the emperor grew up very ugly? Why… You weren't ugly just now?”Elfreda said: “Did I say that? Ha ha, I was just joking with you at that time, you can tell if you look at me, the Emperor is my brother, of course it can't be bad."Radley nodded, sighed and said: "Yes, I should have thought of it in the first place. Princess, who grew up so beautiful, how can the emperor be ugly. Just like me and my brother…”

    Short fiction about the drama that lurks under the surface of our lives, by “a gifted writer” (The New York Times Book Review).   These nine distinctive tales explore the passions and emotions that we struggle with as we try to navigate our way through challenging realities. A woman living a marital shadow-life realizes that her long compensating heart has begun to decompensate in ominous ways. An affluent New Yorker becomes a hoarder to escape a future he cannot bear. A baby dies in a miasma of sibling resentments and secrets of culpability unravel. A construction worker and a bereaved young neighbor together find a way to exist in a broken world.   From the wild rivers of British Columbia to the cement jungle of Manhattan, Lynn Stegner pulls us from our own worlds into her own. With luminous particulars and in richly orchestrated language, these stories sound the vibrant, sometimes anguished music that composes human lives.

    France At War - On the Frontier...

    Rudyard Kipling

    In 1915, as the "Great War" (World War 1) entered its second year; Rudyard Kipling made a journalistic tour of the front, visiting French armed forces. By then he was already winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature (the first writer in English to be so honoured). He published his observations in articles in the Daily Telegraph in England, and in the New York Sun. 
    At that stage of the war nationalistic sentiments were running high but the true cost of war was beginning to be understood "at home". The collection of journalistic pieces is preceded by a poem, "France", that had been published before the outbreak of war (in 1913) which has a more overblown jingoistic feel to it than the reflections on war itself. The poem does, though, show Kipling's love of France, as well as his sense of the destiny of imperial dreams.

    Like the work of Cormac McCarthy, Denis Johnson, Richard Ford, and Annie Proulx, Battleborn represents a near-perfect confluence of sensibility and setting, and the introduction of an exceptionally powerful and original literary voice. In each of these ten unforgettable stories, Claire Vaye Watkins writes her way fearlessly into the mythology of the American West, utterly reimagining it. Her characters orbit around the region's vast spaces, winning redemption despite - and often because of - the hardship and violence they endure. The arrival of a foreigner transforms the exchange of eroticism and emotion at a prostitution ranch. A prospecting hermit discovers the limits of his rugged individualism when he tries to rescue an abused teenager. Decades after she led her best friend into a degrading encounter in a Vegas hotel room, a woman feels the aftershock. Most bravely of all, Watkins takes on -  and reinvents -  her own troubled legacy in a story that emerges from the mayhem and destruction of Helter Skelter. Arcing from the sweeping and sublime to the minute and personal, from Gold Rush to ghost town to desert to brothel, the collection echoes not only in its title but also in its fierce, undefeated spirit the motto of her home state.

    Breckinridge Elkins is the roughest, toughest, fastest-shootin', hardest-fightin' feller in the Bear Creek settlement, and probably in the entire Humbolt Mountains. As he travels further from home, he single-handedly takes on outlaws, settles (and starts) feuds and tries his hand at romancing the girls. He also discovers a lot of strange customs among other folks, such as building houses out of boards and wearing clothes that ain't buckskins. Set in Nevada during the late 1800's, this collection of stories is a great rollicking romp through the American frontier as seen through the eyes of one of the most enjoyable characters created in the history of tall tales. (Summary by RK Wilcox)
