Book Description

"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 Rhapsodies features 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."

Dirtyville Rhapsodies is published on May 14, 2013, and is available for purchase now here.
