This was the guy whose brothers used to break into houses, get sent off to prison, and come back with stories about soap on the rope. So I knew if he was having problems to be careful about talking to him. I said, Oh yeah.

I loved this book. It's well written in a casual conversational tone that's very approachable. The reader shares Scott's experiences in a manner that is both light hearted but profoundly insightful. You will enjoy a variety of unique characters and quirky experiences that lead to self discovery.

Plus the world needs more stories about flying possums. Awesome.

If you have enjoyed Scott's later works, I trust you will appreciate this view into his world and the seeds of his many and meaningful stories. This collection is a true insight into his culture and a warm introduction to his talented storytelling.

Scott McClanahan is one of the freshest writers of fiction I've read in a long time. I love his debut collection, STORIES, which revives the pleasures of the age-old art of storytelling. McClanahan's narrator is funny and profane, at least a little bit self-depricating but somehow always compassionate to his subjects. As a writer, McClanahan is smart and hilarious, evoking layers of pathos from the twists and turns his stories and narration take. His tales revisit familiar Appalachian characters, small-town disasters, and gothic themes that Flannery O'Connor, Breece D'J Pancake, or Tom Waits could love (lost limbs, jailtime, disfigured strippers, hit-and-runs, the small-town down-and-out), but the tone of the narrator makes them something I've never heard before, immediate and contemporary. With many more stories up his sleeve, McClanahan is going places. Highly recommended.
