Fiction/Translation · English & Russian edition

the Little TrilogyOriginal release: January, 2014

The Little Trilogy (ebook)

About the Author: Anton Chekhov (1860-1904) is universally regarded as a master of the short story, and nowhere is his rich contribution to the genre on fuller display than in the so-called Little Trilogy (1898): “The Man in a Case,” “Gooseberries,” and “About Love.” These interconnected stories reflect the entire range of his gifts, his ability to hold comedy in balance with tragedy, to wrest beauty from ugliness, and to transform the pathetic into the sublime. Written rather late in his career, the Little Trilogy also serves as a kind of artistic autobiography, charting the evolution of his own approach to story-telling from humorous caricature, to Tolstoyan sentimentality, to a uniquely Chekhovian study of “individual cases,” in which generalities are dispensed with and judgment is withheld.

 

Anthony Bonds | The Moonflower King

Fiction · English

Original release: February, 2012

The Moonflower King (ebook)
Price: $4.99 USD
Dreams and memories are as real as waking life in Bonds’ The Moonflower King.

When Ash Moone learns that his twin brother Oscar’s botched suicide attempt has left him confined to a wheelchair, he is forced to leave his life as a writer in Brooklyn for the family’s dilapidated emu ranch in a remote East Texas town.

At first a reluctant caretaker, Ash must confront the old faces that inspired his first book, and soon learns the true depth of his family’s dark legacy.

As Oscar’s continued obsession with death threatens to ruin both of their lives, Ash must either abandon his brother or risk his own humanity to make peace between them.

“What a strange and wonderful little book this is. When Ash Moone goes home to the small town of Vatican, TX, after his brother’s failed suicide attempt, he is drawn back into a world where reality defers to dreams, and truths are only thinly veiled fictions. Bonds manages, in this slim novella, to create a captivating world where mythology and madness reign. I loved every quirky character in this story: each one is authentically flawed but also endowed with a certain amount of grace. And the ties that bind the Moone family together, though damaged by shared sorrows, are tenacious as vines all the same.”

T. Greenwood, author of Nearer Than the Sky and Two Rivers

About the Author: Anthony Bonds is a writer and book designer. He works as a publishing editor in San Diego where he lives with his wife.
