In The Park of Culture

Anyone who looks at current best seller lists and wonders what ever happened to serious writing can find an answer here. "Literary short fictions" is the publisher's way of describing this collection from Edward Falco, author of two novels and numerous poems and short stories. In the afterword Falco explains that whatever labels have been applied to these pieces individually, all were approached in a spirit of experimentation, "disregarding the various conventions of form to see where such contraventions might lead." Themes include the intersection of cultural forces and personal desires and the difficulty of maintaining faith in a world marked by violence.
