What passes for love a collection of short stories by Stanley Wm Rogal( file )
6 editions published between 1996 and 2009 in English and held by 134 libraries worldwide
What Passes for Love is a collection of short stories about the dynamics of male-female relationships. These 10 short stories by Stan Rogal resonate with the many mating rituals of men and women: paranoia, obsession, voyeurism, and even assimilation. Rogal's writing reflects his honesty and brashness previously seen in two books of poetry and published stories. What Passes for Love is illustrated with the paintings of Kirsten Johnson
Bafflegab a novel by Stanley Wm Rogal( file )
5 editions published between 2000 and 2009 in English and held by 132 libraries worldwide
Stan Rogal's second novel is the story of one writer's journey through the urban wilderness. Taking the form of a writer's journal, Bafflegab is a gross collection of entries, observations and letters to the editor; a scatological scrapbook of philosphical musings, literary meanderings, quotes, misquotes, contradictions and criticisms and a kaleidoscope of perversions. Bafflegab excavates the meaning of love in the impenetrable city. At the same time, it navigates the crooked path to the heart of culture. In Rogal's trademark unsentimental treatment of raw emotion, his narrator attacks the mov
Tell him you're married short stories by Stanley Wm Rogal( file )
4 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 128 libraries worldwide
If the ghosts of Woody Allen and David Mamet were available (at this early date) to float through the fiction of one writer, that writer would have to be Stan Rogal. In linked short stories imbued with wry humor, brutally frank honesty and caustically banal dialogue, women and men argue, make love and taunt each other mercilessly. Parents and kids don't get along: ''We love you ... '' says a character in ''Hard Line'' to which his father responds: ''Bullshit. I'm going to kill myself tonight.'' And the son's response? A deadpan, ''You've said that before.'' People on the cusp of middle age, who
Restless by Stanley Wm Rogal( file )
4 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in English and held by 123 libraries worldwide
This is Rogal's second short story collection. Here the reader returns to Rogal's Kafkaesque world of the bizarre. His nimble and energetic writing, coupled with a brittle rhythm, lead the reader down the dark corridors of these stories. Rogal's writing is tautly realist and, in turn, lyrically surreal, while being shot through with dark humour. He explodes the extraordinary out of ordinary. But the most salient feature of Rogal's work is its lack of sentimentality
Bloodline a haunted crime story by Stanley Wm Rogal( file )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 59 libraries worldwide
"Bloodline (a haunted crime story) is noir-style novel set in the suburbs of a mid-size North American city. The plot concerns a series of murders that involve young, female hitchhikers along a stretch of mountain highway. A string of coincidences, shaky evidence and interference by an unscrupulous female newspaper reporter lead police to suspect a man who may or not be innocent. In the meantime, a head-strong fifteen year old girl continues to tempt fate on several levels. In a more metaphorical vein, it's a tale of people haunted by their past and how this manifests itself in dreams, nightmares and reality; a story of family and family lineage and how things stick or get passed on from generation to generation even as people attempt to slip their roots and move forward with their lives. A struggle of nature vs nurture. As well, it is the story of how the press not only reports the news, but plays a hand in creating it, whether for better or worse"--Amazon.com
