  • What Burns: Stories

    What Burns: Stories

    Peck, Dale

    The first collection of short fiction from Lambda Award-winning novelist Dale Peck spans twenty-five years of writing, including two O. Henry award-winners and the recipient of a Pushcart Prize. The stories in What Burns examine the extremes of desire against a backdrop of family, class, and mortality. In "Bliss," a young man befriends the convicted felon who murdered his mother when he was only a child. In "Not Even Camping Is Like Camping Anymore," a teenage boy fends off the advances of a five-year-old his mother babysits. And in "Dues," a man discovers that everything he owns is borrowed from someone else-including his time on earth. Walking the tightrope between tenderness and violence that has defined Peck's work since the publication of his first novel, Martin and John, through his most recent, Night Soil, What Burns reveals Peck's mastery of the short form.

    Perlmutter, David

    The number one New York Times bestselling author of Grain Brain and his physician son explore how modern culture threatens to rewire the brains and damage health, offering a practical plan for healing. Contemporary life provides infinite opportunities, along with endless temptations. One can eat whatever they want, whenever they want.
