Barry Hannah’s reputation as a master of the short story form, established almost twenty years ago with Airships, has been confirmed by the resounding success of his latest, High Lonesome. Tales of ardent voyeurs, drinkers, seducers, killers, and small-town failures desperate for a haven beyond good and evil, High Lonesome is a darkly comic, fiercely tragic, and always strikingly original odyssey into the back roads of Southern unsettlement. The stories collected here will astound with their originality, emotional impact, and gritty realness.
