Get Surreal at Burke's 

The press release reads: "This inaugural issue contains dream stories, horror stories, monster stories, insanity, magical realism, the distorted, the peculiar, the impossible, the irrational."

Must be the South, the surreal South, we're talking about and as envisioned by a bunch of contributors in an anthology of short fiction and poetry called Surreal South (Press 53, $19.95).

And a good bunch they are: Robert Olen Butler, William Gay, Joyce Carol Oates, Chris Offutt, George Singleton, and Daniel Woodrell. Writers Laura Benedict (author of the new novel Isabella Moon) and Pinckney Benedict too.

The Benedicts are the editors of the anthology, and they'll be signing (and reading from) Surreal South at Burke's Book Store (936 S. Cooper) on Saturday, November 10th, from 2 to 4 p.m. Contributors (and husband and wife) Tom Franklin and Beth Ann Fennelly will be on hand as well to read from their work, beginning at 3.

For more information, call Burke's at 278-7484.
