One Hundred Apocalypses and Other Apocalypses PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

One Hundred Apocalypses and Other Apocalypses free pdf Lucy Corin's dazzling new collection is powered by one hundred apocalypses: a series of short stories, many only a few lines, that illuminate moments of vexation and crisis, revelations and revolutions. An apocalypse might come in the form of the end of a relationship or the end of the world, but what it exposes is the tricky landscape of our longing for a clean slate.
Three longer stories are equally visionary: in "Eyes of Dogs," a soldier returns from war and encounters a witch who may in fact be his mother- "Madmen" describes an America where children who reach adolescence choose the madman who will accompany them into adulthood- in "Godzilla versus the Smog Monster," a teenager is flustered by his older, wilder neighbor while California burns on the other side of the continent.
At once mournful and explosively energetic, "One Hundred Apocalypses and Other Apocalypses" makes manifest the troubled conscience of an uneasy time.
