If Raymond Carver or Charles Bukowski wrote noir and pulp, this would be it.... Minimalist in approach but long on mood and atmosphere, this first entry in The Ladies of Liquor series is a boozy mix of old-school pulp, shadowy noir, and hard-boiled double-crosses. Writer Anthony Venutolo delivers a collection of nearly 50 flash fictions and short stories that splatter into the ear at 90 proof. From the deserted bus stations of Route 66 to the smoky, neon-tinged jazz dives of the big cities, these wanton tales of longing introduce us to desperate vixens on the fringe and those shifty men that drove them there. Get your shot glass ready because in this retro world, showgirls, drifters, barmaids, and thieves have one thing in common - they're all painted on a seedy canvas drenched in a hearty barrel of Kentucky's finest nectar. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Matthias N Bossi. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/039399/bk_acx0_039399_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Bullets. Booze. Bad luck. It's all here. These tales - best devoured with a stiff pour of bourbon - delve into the dark underworld of drifters, gangsters, wannabe hoods, and small-town folks in slippery situations. Written in terse and urgent prose, these stories cling to the edge of reason and peer into the dark abyss that is human deviance. Here's a taste of what you'll find in Tough Guys, an entertaining collection of thrilling stories: "Apprentice": Ronnie might be a truck driver, but he's something else too - a hit man. "Room Number Six": Frank just got out of prison, and he's not too happy to find his wife in bed with a prison guard. What's he gonna do? "No Sé": Hector has been a gangster his whole life. He's rock hard. But this hard-hearted gangster just met his match - a six-year-old girl named Charlotte. "Last Shift": Everybody has a breaking point. For Sandy, a waitress at an all-night diner, her breaking point might be tonight. A slick crook picks her up from work, but Sandy's luck means this guy is up to no good. Will Sandy, the thin, little blonde with three-inch heels, finally snap? "You Ever Hear About War Dogs, Sam?": Hayes is a small-town kid who works at a discount store. What's his future? The US Marine Corps. But when Hayes gets back, he's a little bit different. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Stuart Ashenbrenner.

Out of the Woods
23,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

Seven years ago, Chris Offutt made his literary debut with Kentucky Straight, a fiercely original collection that earned him not only critical praise but many prestigious awards. The eight new stories in Out of the Woods mark Offutt's return to the form in which he first displayed his astonishing talent. Offutt, who 'draws landscape and constructs dialogue with the eyes and ears of a native son' (The Miami Herald), is on strong home turf here, capturing those who have left the Kentucky hills and long to return. These are stories of gravediggers and drifters, gamblers and truck drivers a long way from home, tales that are so full of hard edges they can't help but tell some hard truths.

Art For Hotels

ART FOR HOTELS paints a stunning picture of a migrant mind, through a unique and innovative blend of art and story-telling. Word HOTELS in the title is not used literally but as a symbol of a place where one stays when one is not at home. &quote;A collection of 108 images and 4 written pieces,&quote; explain the authors in the Introduction, &quote;the book is a series of visual and narrative meditations on experiences and states of mind known to most travelers: escapism, exoticism, freedom, joy, discovery, foreignness, strangeness, anonymity, spirituality, cultural isolation, nostalgia, alienation, unease with both familiar and unfamiliar surroundings. In other words, the focus is not on individual actions, historical events, or explanations (although they are mentioned as well), but on how these events and actions are played out in a migrant's mindset. Neither art nor writing is a direct illustration of the other . . . What unites the visual and the narrative parts of the book is a common theme (migration) and the complex beauty we both find in our subject.&quote;The number of people in the world whose lives unfold away from their original homes is both staggering and elusive. If one counts only those who have lived outside of their native country for at least one year, over two hundred million people in the world are immigrants. Many others stay away for shorter periods and are not included in this statistic. Yet others reside in the host country illegally, so frequently are not counted at all. And then there are those who leave their hometown without leaving their homeland. For example, in the developing world, sixty million people move to cities each year, while in the United States more than sixty percent of adults have lived away from their birthplace at least once. Migrants hail from all social and economic strata and include refugees and diplomats, jet-setters and drifters, business executives and migrant workers, rock stars and illegal immigrants, rich retirees and vagabonds, world-class athletes and starving artists. Some make a home in a new place. Others bide their time at the airports and train stations, in cars, in the loneliness of hotel rooms or guest houses, and in other temporary lodgings and residences. Unsure if home is everywhere or nowhere, they often are strangers in their place of residence, as well as in their place of origin. ART FOR HOTELS is dedicated to all of them. The authors, siblings Relja and Vida Penezic, are themselves migrants. Between them, they have resided in more than a half dozen cities all over the world, including Belgrade, London, Paris, Moscow, Bowling Green, New York City, San Francisco, and Los Angeles.

The Collected Short Stories of Louis l'Amour: V...
28,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Louis L'Amour's world is built on those dramatic moments when men and women cast their fears, doubts, and pasts behind them and plunge into the unknown-into split-second decisions with life-and-death consequences. Nowhere is that more evident than in this latest collection of stories set on the American frontier. Here L'Amour takes us across a bold, beautifully rendered landscape where strangers may come to trust-or kill-one another; where old scores haunt new lives and the wrong choice leaves unwitting victims. Even at the best of times, this is a world in which every man and woman must be responsible for their own survival. This keepsake volume features unforgettable moments and timeless characters. From fugitives to visionaries, from fortune seekers and drifters seeking a new life to young women trying to build homes in an all too often lawless world, the characters in these pulse-pounding stories are vintage L'Amour. Together in this vivid, rollicking collection of stories, they bring to life the American spirit and confirm Louis L'Amour's place at the very top of the pantheon of American writers.
