Read full description of the books:
Having written more than eight novels, including "My Amputations "and "Dirty Bird Blues, " alongside a dozen books of poetry, "Chicago Heat and Other Stories "is Clarence Major s second work of short fiction and first book with Green Writers Press.
"Chicago Heat and Other Stories" employs a gorgeous purity and simplicity of language in a series of masterful stories exploring human interaction. Each narrative voice comes forward all at once, individual and complete, without obstacle or complication, enabling the reader to see the characters and feel their emotions. Major does not shy away from the bitter or the harsh; we get to hear it all. Like paint on an easel he blends lyric harmony with moxie and the blunt with the beautiful. The imagery is completely accessible and generously given. Toni Morrison comes to mind. His work is like jewels."
