The Bookslinger app has been updated with a new story!
This week’s story is from The Only Thing I Have by Rhonda Waterfall, published by Arsenal Pulp Press.
“In succinct, Carveresque prose, Waterfall creates remarkable protagonists obsessed with starlet pixies, squash, lost infants, pregnant throats, ghosts in telephone poles and above all the sheer longing requisite in being alive.”—Adam Lewis Schroeder, author of Kingdom of Monkeys
Rhonda Waterfall evokes A.M. Homes and Alice Munro in these unsettling, evocatively written stories about domestic dysfunction. In them, life unfolds in odd, unpredictable ways: a murderous plot is revealed through Post-It notes, a film director will do anything to recapture his lost youth, and an elderly woman finds the love of a child in a marrow squash.
