Staff Reviews

Gay's posthumous volume places him squarely in the world of Southern Gothic fiction, echoing Flannery O'Connor and Cormac McCarthy. His gritty short stories of characters from the far side of the tracks had me turning the pages with a bit of trepidation, but I couldn't stop reading. Longtime fans will appreciate the sections of memoirs included. I loved it so much the publisher even put this blurb on the back cover.

From a celebrated master of the Southern Gothic comes a last collection
of hard-hitting short fiction, his final posthumous work

Beloved for his novels Twilight, The Long Home, and The Lost Country, and his groundbreaking collection I Hate to See That Evening Sun Go Down,
William Gay returns with one final posthumous collection of short stories, adapted
from the archive found after his death in February 2012. In addition to previously
unpublished short stories, Stories from the Attic includes fragments
from two of the unpublished novels that were works in progress at the time of
his death.

Marked by his signature skill and bare-knuckled insight, this collection is
a must-read for William Gay devotees and fans of Southern short fiction.
