Join us on Saturday, May 7th at 7:00 for a presentation by New York author Greg Sanders
In The Suffering of Lesser Mammals, acclaimed author Greg Sanders draws the reader into a world of believable absurdity, as individual crises meld with those of the age. Among the thirteen stories in this collection, a young father’s anxiety throws the Earth out of orbit; a bachelor breaks up with his car; a “multivariate correlator” conjures a lonely deity; two sisters are abducted by a cadre of immortal alewives. Wildly inventive, morally wise, and achingly funny, this is the short story as reimagined by a fearless—and fearsome—voice.
Praise for The Suffering of Lesser Mammals
“Greg Sanders is a startling fiction writer
with a quirky-snarky & deeply affecting prose manner that’s original
and all his own. I highly recommend you jump on his new collection of
stories, The Suffering of Lesser Mammals. Of which we are some.”
—Frederick Barthelme, author of the story collection Moon Deluxe, the novel There Must Be Some Mistake, and fourteen other books in between.
“Greg Sanders is a beguiling, far-ranging
fabulist, whose wily, hyper-smart inventions take us from Big Sur to
Brooklyn, from Kafka’s Prague to a remote exoplanet—and to cyberspace,
whose cold zones measure human value in ‘clickthrough rates,’ and whose
dark corners register ‘a world in magnificent turmoil and unrepentant
—David Gates, Pulitzer finalist and author of A Hand Reached Down to Guide Me

Praise for Motel Girl
"The stories in Greg Sanders's debut collection are difficult to
categorize. They owe a debt to Franz Kafka and fabulists like Jorge Luis
Borges but seem just as strongly to want to transmit from a realist
world where small psychological insights and gritty detail carry the
day. The stories aspire to the have-your-cake-and-eat-it-too achievement
of existing in both literal and symbolic realms. Many of them reach
this rare ground."
—Scott Elliott, American Book Review; May/June 2009
