Tony Earley, "Mr. Tall: a Novella and Stories"

Two decades after his first short story collection, Tony Earley revists the genre with the “funny and bittersweet” stories in Mr. Tall (Kirkus). These stories introduce us not only to ordinary people seeking extraordinary lives, but also to the skunk ape (a southern variant of Bigfoot), the ghost of Jesse James, and a bone-tired Jack the Giant Killer. Whether it's Appalachia, Nashville, the Carolina Coast, or a make-believe land of talking dogs, each world Earley creates is indelible. Tony Earley is the author of four previous books including the the short story collection Here We Are in Paradise and the novels The Blue Star and Jim the Boy. He lives with his family in Nashville, Tennessee, where he is the Samuel Milton Fleming Professor of English at Vanderbilt University. -
