The coast of Chicago by Stuart Dybek( Book )

"The stolid landscape of Chicago suddenly turns dreamlike and otherworldly in Stuart Dybek's classic story collection. A child's collection of bottle caps becomes the tombstones of a graveyard. A lowly rightfielder's inexplicable death turns him into a martyr to baseball. Strains of Chopin floating down the tenement airshaft are transformed into a mysterious anthem of loss. Combining homely detail and heartbreakingly familiar voices with grand leaps of imagination, The Coast of Chicago is a masterpiece from one of America's most highly regarded writers."--Publisher's description
Streets in their own ink by Stuart Dybek( Book )
6 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and Japanese and held by 589 libraries worldwide
"In his second book of poems, Stuart Dybek finds vitality in the same imagery that animates his works of fiction. These poems map the internal geographies of characters who inhabit severe and often savage city streets, finding there a tension that transfigures past and present, memory and fantasy, sin and sanctity, nostalgia and the need to forget."--Jacket
Childhood and other neighborhoods by Stuart Dybek( Book )
14 editions published between 1980 and 2003 in English and held by 559 libraries worldwide
"In Stuart Dybek's Chicago, wonder lurks in unexpected places - in garbage-strewn alleys, gloomy basement apartments, abandoned rooms at the top of rickety stairs periodically rumbled by passing el trains. Transformed through the wide eyes of Dybek's adolescent heroes, these urban backwaters become exotic landscapes of fear-filled possibility, of dreams not yet turned to nightmares. Chronicling what happens when Old World faith meets the dark side of the American dream, Dybek's poignant stories of coming of age Chicago alternately appall, amaze, and just simply entertain."--Jacket

Flash fiction : very short stories by James Thomas( Book )
1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 532 libraries worldwide
"How short can a story be and still truly be a story? This volume of seventy-two very short fictions, none much more than 750 words in length, demonstrates to our repeated satisfaction that less can be more, small can stand tall, and the diminutive can be dynamically and dramatically complete. Here for enjoyment and study are very short pieces by acknowledged modern masters -- including Raymond Carver, Richard Brautigan, Margaret Atwood, Julio Cortázar and Tim O'Brien -- as well as fiction by newer talents, who have embraced the short form with much gusto and considerable grace. With a rich variety of stories and authors, subjects and styles and sensibilities, these flashes of fiction make for eclectic -- and often electric -- reading. The volume is a must for readers and writers, indeed for anyone interested in the finely sharpened edge of contemporary literature"--Jacket
