Carrying the torch : stories by Brock Clarke( Book )
6 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 255 libraries worldwide
The stories in this collection occupy a world at once as familiar as a suburban backyard or a southern college's hallowed football field and as strange as a man who buys Savannah, Georgia, and tries to turn it into the perfect Southern city as part of his attempt to win back his estranged wife. The fictional territory of Carrying the Torch, is in short, Brock Clarke's, one in which the surreal and the hilarious share a neighborhood with the painfully real and the sweetly ironic. Here readers will encounter characters dislocated by work and love, by huge losses and life's small dramas, men and women who have migrated South in search of redemption--or at least in the hope of leaving the worst behind. - Publisher's description

The happiest people in the world a novel by Brock Clarke( Sound Recording )
3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 122 libraries worldwide
Adapting the format of the political thriller and subverting it to tell his story of innocence corrupted, Clarke has delivered a biting and controversial satire on the American obsession with security and the conspiracies that threaten it. A spy novel like no other spy novel. It's also a send-up of American culture, and in particular the constant pursuit of individual happiness of the kind that is attainable only at the expense of others
