STORIES

DAN DEWEESE
FALL 2012 SELECTION OF THE OREGON BOOK CLUB



"No one writes about males and conflict avoidance better...You need a straight-backed chair and a bourbon to read it." —James Bernard Frost, author of A Very Minor Prophet


The jacket copy in this book consists of the following: "These stories are about men, women, buildings, and words." DeWeese, the author of the novel You Don't Love This Man (Harper Perennial), offers a collection of eight stories in this book, six of which have been published in well-known literary journals and magazines. His characters--fathers and their children, architects and their critics, writers and their fantasies--search for meaning and identity amid the chaos of contemporary life, in which personal and professional failure often seem just one wrong decision away.

 

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

"DeWeese's stories are as thoughtfully crafted as the buildings they frequently describe. And like extracting meaning from the shape of a building, reading these stories is an exercise in examining the relation of form to function: the walls are sound, the roof keeps the rain off, but there's meaning beyond the purely functional." —Alison Hallett, The Portland Mercury

"Between the lines of DeWeese’s stories are entire novels—busted relationships, custody battles, children lost—but DeWeese only gives us the aftermath, the banter of the victims at a paint store." —The Oregon Book Club
