Literary Wanderlust To Publish New Short Story Collection
By: Literary Wanderlust
Not Quite So Stories showcases the idea that life is absurd, ultimately beyond comprehension. In each story, people try to understand and explain the world. They may be able to come to terms with small pieces, but existence as a whole is beyond their grasp. Life isn’t explainable, and the best people can do is continue on with their lives in the face of that fact. The stories in this collection proceed from this idea, examining how different characters manage – and/or fail – to do this.
Nathaniel Tower, author of Nagging Wives, Foolish Husbands, says “With Not Quite So Stories, there's no need to suspend disbelief. David S. Atkinson makes the absurd 100% believable. These stories are hilarious and real. Atkinson is on his way to becoming the master of absurdity.”
Not Quite So Stories will be published on March 1, 2016.
