Dirtyville Rhapsodies by Josh Green
One of Men's Health's Top 11 Summer Reads 2013, alongside Stephen King and Dan Brown!
According to Men's Health magazine, Josh Green's book ranks with publications from bestselling Stephen King and Dan Brown as a Great Summer Beach Read. See this link on the Men's Health website. Here, Josh's writing is also compared to Khaled Hosseini (author of The Kite Runner) and short stories by Sam Lipsyte. The collection was also a Finalist for the St. Lawrence Book Award.
"Do you really know your neighbors, America? Look again. Look closer. This darkly comic short story collection focuses on ordinary people caught in all manner of conundrums, fiascoes, and legal dilemmas, much of it their own stinking fault. Set mostly in Atlanta (capital of the "Dirty South"), Dirtyville Rhapsodiesfeatures everyday folks who overcome vice and personal tragedy, scoundrels so foul they attract news headlines, and the wayward souls who find salvation in society's crevasses. Some of them will weave meaning from pratfalls, devastating loss, and downright stupidity. And some won't."
