Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Grab Bag is comprised of two interrelated novels, Dark Rides and Wish Book, from one of Canada’s most important young writers. Both books are set in the same small rural city, in different eras (1950s, 1930s), each characterized by McCormack’s spare and elliptical prose.

Derek McCormack’s journalism has appeared in many publications across North America, including nest, Saturday Night, and the National Post. In 2001, he was nominated for a National Magazine Award for an article he wrote on Halloween. Wild Mouse, a book McCormack co-authored with poet Chris Chambers, was nominated for the 1999 Toronto Book Award. His new novella, The Haunted Hillbilly, will be published in Canada by ECW Press in Fall 2003.

Synopsis:

The new installment in cult author Dennis Cooper's highly acclaimed Little House on the Bowery series.

Synopsis:

Fiction. Critically acclaimed books Dark Rides and Wishbook are collected in a single volume in GRAB BAG, a selection of editor Dennis Cooper's "Little House on the Bowery" series. Dark Rides, the first book in GRAB BAG, tells the story of Derek, a gay teenager looking for love in carnivals, honky tonks, and hospitals. Wish Book, the second book, focuses on a small city swarming with con men, hucksters, and spiritualists during the Great Depression. Though Derek McCormack has been nominated for a Toronto Book Award and a National Magazine Award in Canada, GRAB BAG is his first release in the United States. "Anyone interested in the more wicked, crafty and inventive forms of Canadian writing should be well advised to spend time with McCormack"--Toronto Star.
