Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Winner of the Arnold Gingrich Short Fiction Award

Now considered a contemporary classic, Airships was honored by Esquire magazine with the Arnold Gingrich Short Fiction Award, and its author was welcomed on the cover of The New York Times Book Review as a "sensational new comic writer."

These twenty stories are a fresh, exuberant celebration of the new American South-a land of high school band contests, where good old boys from Vicksurg are reunited in Vietnam and petty nostalgia and the constant pain of disappointed love prevail. Airships is a striking demonstration of Barry Hannah's mature and original talent.

Includes:

"Water Liars"

"Love Too Long"

"Testimony of Pilot"

"Coming Close to Donna"

"Dragged Fighting from His Tomb"

"Quo Vadis, Smut?"

"Return to Return"

"Green Gets It"

"Midnight and I'm Not Famous Yet"

"Our Secret Home"

"Eating Wife and Friends"
