George Singleton will read from his new short story collection at 3 p.m. Saturday, May 24 at City Lights Bookstore. "Between Wrecks" takes readers on a raucous bar crawl through an America both startlingly familiar and hilariously absurd, examining paranoia, fear, relentless “truths,” longstanding personal habits gone awry, and what it means to look toward a horizon that may or may not be a mirage. NPR Morning Edition had this to say about Singleton’s writing, "George Singleton writes about the rural South without sentimentality or stereotype but with plenty of sharp-witted humor. . . . A raconteur of trends, countertrends, obsessions and odd characters." His previous short story collection, Stray Decorum, is a staff pick of Eon’s.  Singleton has written several short story collections and two novels.  He lives in South Carolina.

To reserve copies of his books please call City Lights Bookstore at 828-586-9499.
