  • Surviving the Floodby Stephen Minot

    The Permanent Press 2015; US$ 9.99

    From the contemporary angst of Ghost Images (1979), Minot now turns to a neat blend of allegory and Biblical revisionism. Ham, Noah’s third and youngest son, is the narrator and there are elements, he wants us to know, that the Official Version of the story has left out. The scorn, for instance, with which Noah’s idea for the ark was met from within... more...

  • Postcards from Pinskby Larry Duberstein

    The Permanent Press 2015; US$ 9.99

    Postcards from Pinsk is the story of a middle-aged Beacon Hill shrink coming to grips with himself. The “postcard” is the catalyst for crisis—his wife of long standing is divorcing him.
