Trans Europe Express

stories

Elizabeth Lopeman

Across these six stories, Lopeman captures the expatriate experience like no other writer. Her characters experience art, work, love, and tragedy as richly strange and sometimes dangerous when carried over borders or translated across cultures. A collection of vivid images and fascinating characters, Trans Europe Express is a smart, exciting new chapter in the literary tradition of Americans searching Europe not only for experience but, ultimately, for identity.

The Parable of You

stories

Tony Wolk

In the tradition of literary fantasists like Jorge Luis Borges and Italo Calvino, Tony Wolk delivers a feast of stories that challenge our assumptions about history, reality, and what stories reveal about their tellers. A collection decades in the making, The Parable of You is the work of a writer able to move from the cosmic to the personal in the space of a few deft sentences, with surprising and moving results.

Disorder

stories

Dan DeWeese

DeWeese's 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.

A Simple Machine, Like the Lever

a novel

Evan P. Schneider

Nick Allander, 31, is trying to pay off his debt, impress his girlfriend, keep his job, cast off his introversion, and accept the world's imperfections without abandoning his heart. Unsure of what moves to make, though, he considers growing his beard, taking up alcoholism, abandoning scrounging, and owning an automobile—before too much slips by. All the while he clings to his bicycle, a simple machine whose purpose and workings he grasps.

Nine Simple Patterns for Complicated Women

stories

Mary Rechner

Over the course of these nine stories, Mary Rechner brings a frank, humorous, and ultimately illuminating narrative voice to the subjects of sex, marriage, family, and work. The patient, uncompromising work of a writer who has carefully observed the moments of possibility and peril that appear—and that we often deliberately seek—in the journey from youth to adulthood, Nine Simple Patterns for Complicated Women signals the arrival of a significant new voice in contemporary fiction.
