Acquainted with Squalor

Short Stories

2015 INDIES Winner
Silver, Short Stories (Adult Fiction)

Acquainted with Squalor delivers astonishing power of body-and-soul. Meteors fall, an old neighbor tosses an infrared Phoenix beacon into a cup of loose change, and a woman on the phone with a friend mentions nothing about her eviction notice. These nine stories nourish our sense of wonder and acknowledge our deepest despair. Nath Jones captures what it means for us to be at home and still awash in the world.
