Description
Critics from all corners of the country have celebrated Tom Piazza's short story collection Blues And Trouble as the debut of a major new American voice in fiction. Set in Memphis, Florida, New York, New Orleans, and elsewhere, these stories deliver a vision of an America where the social and emotional ground shifts constantly underfoot. Full of the restless imagery and force of the deepest blues and country music, it is a work of masterful craft and raw beauty -- the first glimpse of a large talent that plays by its own rules.

"Clarity of vision, keenness of ear and sheer elan.... A terrific debut. More, please". -- Washington Post Book World

"Full of the kind of details and emotional realism that resonate long after you put the book down". -- Kirkus Reviews (starred)

"Perfectly paced, delicately balanced.... a vision that is often profoundly disturbing and quintessentially American". -- New Orleans Times-picayune
