All We Want Is Everything by Andrew F. Sullivan. Sullivan’s exceptional debut collection of short stories finds the misused and forgotten, the places in between, the borderlands on the edge of town where dead fields alternate with empty warehouses – places where men and women clutch tightly at whatever fragments remain. Motels are packed with human cargo, while parole is just another state of being. Christmas dinners become battlegrounds; truck cabs and bathroom stalls transform into warped confessionals; and stories are told and retold, held out by people stumbling towards one another in the dark. Frightening, hilarious, filled with raging impotence and moments of embattled grace, All We Want Is Everything is the advent of a tremendous new literary voice. ARP, part of our Literary Collection. ISBN:13-9781894037846, $16.95, 184 pp., pb., 5.5″ x 8.5″ x .5″. Short Stories, Urban Life, Literary Fiction. Ebook available.
