New in new DJ protected by Brodart DJ cover. Signed by author on full title page. For pictures or additional info write me at info at abnormalbooks dot com or visit my site. FROM THE CRITICS Publisher's Weekly After years of collecting early 20th-century postcards, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Butler (A Good Scent from a Strange Mountain) takes 15 choice missives as inspiration for his latest volume of short stories .......the collection as a whole adds up to a thoughtful commentary on America at the dawn of a new century: while some Americans were buoyed by their confidence in technology and progress, others, at the mercy of a disease-ridden, hardscrabble existence, could trust only in their faith in God. Agent, Kim Witherspoon. (Aug.) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information. Kirkus Reviews A wonderfully varied third collection from Pulitzer-winner Butler (Fair Warning, 2002, etc.) investigates diverse lives-and deaths-early in the 20th century. Each of these 15 stories opens with a reproduction of a vintage postcard, including its handwritten message, and from these often cryptic texts the author imagines an entire fictional world..........There's plenty of sorrow, but plenty of exhilaration too, thanks to these characters' grit and full-bodied humanity. Assured, accomplished, and another intriguing change of pace from an adventurous writer who refuses to be pigeonholed. Agent: Kim Witherspoon/Witherspoon Associates.
