The River of Lost Voices: Stories from Guatemala (Iowa Short Fiction Award)

The River of Lost Voices: Stories from Guatemala (Iowa Short Fiction Award) by Mark Brazaitis
English | Sep. 1, 1998 | ISBN: 0877456429 | 199 Pages | PDF | 7 MB

Guatemala is a country of extremes – a place of terrible cruelty, apparent in its thirty-six-year civil war, and incredible beauty in its dramatic landscapes and indigenous cultures. The stories in Mark Brazaitis' The River of Lost Voices capture both the magic and the sorrow of life in Santa Cruz Verapaz, a small town in the northern mountains of Guatemala. In stories such as Jose del Rio and Bathwater, ' Brazaitis blends magical realism with political intrigue to realize the impact of the country's civil war and its roots in the Spanish Conquest.

Within the Lighted City (Iowa Short Fiction Award)

Within the Lighted City (Iowa Short Fiction Award) by Lisa Lenzo
English | Oct. 1, 1997 | ISBN: 0877456119 | 113 Pages | PDF | 4 MB

A collection of short stories about Detroiters, or former Detroiters, including a near-albino teenager, an angel, and the Zito family.
Lenzo's nine stories, set in and around Detroit, remove just enough of the solid foundation from beneath her characters' footing. Some, like the teen-agers in "Stealing Trees," imperil themselves without very much outside help, slinking into a ghetto to filch trees they plan to replant elsewhere.

Thank You for Being Concerned and Sensitive (Iowa Short Fiction Award)

Thank You for Being Concerned and Sensitive (Iowa Short Fiction Award) by Jim Henry
English | Oct. 1, 1997 | ISBN: 0877456100 | 153 Pages | PDF | 16 MB

Jim Henry's stories defy convention. There are no easy answers, no quick fixes. Although the plots vary—from a corpse returning to visit his family weeks after his burial, to the musings of a congressman grappling with the weight of history, to a wealthy family's elaborate plot to cheer their mysteriously wounded mother—all express a sense of the extraordinary in the ordinary, the absurd in the everyday.

Western Electric (John Simmons Short Fiction Award)

Western Electric (John Simmons Short Fiction Award) by Don Zancanella
English | Nov. 1, 1996 | ISBN: 0877455678 | 142 Pages | PDF | 5 MB

Cumulatively, the eight stories in this exceptionally cohesive first collection feel novelistic in scope and scale. Most of the tales are set in the wide open spaces of Wyoming, ranging in time from 1868 to the late 1970s. A strong sense of how landscape and geography shape and mold character permeates the book. In the clever and subtle "Disarmament," two loners, one an Air Force captain in charge of maintaining decoy missile silos, the other a schoolteacher from Cheyenne who rents a two-room cabin on the prairie each summer, discover each other through their affinity for the plains.

Obsession, adultery, infidelity, unrequited love, suicide, betrayal, death—Tereze Glück's clear-sighted characters coolly assess their actions and reactions. When a man's wife dies suddenly, he feels liberated, and learning this stuns him. Taking a leap into personhood, a child watching her mother in the garden experiences empathy. A woman addicted to a lover realizes how she has squandered herself.
