Fred Bonnie's previous collection, Detecting Metal, was included in Booklist's Top of the List for 1998. We believe that you'll find this collection as deserving. Bonnie was a writer not afraid to use plot in his stories, and he was a writer on a constant lurk for characters. His stories convey a delightful sense of humor wherein the protagonist is often enough hoisted by his or her own petard. These stories combine two out-of-print Canadian collections, Squatter's Rights and Displaced Persons. Fred revised all the stories, which appear in America for the first time in book form.

From the Publisher:

Fred Bonnie's published work includes six collections of short stories, the most recent of which is Detecting Metal, which was placed on Booklist's Editor's Choice for 1998. During Bonnie's five-year tenure as garden editor of Oxmoor House and Southern Living Magazine, he also published six how-to books on gardening.

Fred Bonnie often sets his stories in the workplace, drawing on varied backgrounds to provide material for his fiction. He has, since the age of 11, been a paperboy, caddy, dishwasher, mailroom clerk, book store clerk, short-order cook, milkman, factory worker, busboy, campground custodian, library assistant, professional conversationalist, janitor, bookkeeping supervisor in a bank, country-western singer, city directory canvasser, pizza deliveryman, horticultural journalist, bartender, advertising and PR executive, caterer, speech writer, chef, and teacher. He currently lives in Columbiana, Alabama, where he makes his living as a freelance writer.

From the Back Cover:

"Fred Bonnie writes the short story the way the masters did."--Pat Conroy, author of Beach Music

"As you read this collection you are going to be deeply moved. You will find persons here you will never forget, and you will need to return to enter their lives over the years, just as Fred Bonnie did in making and re-making them for us. Above all, you will know you are in the presence of a great story-teller."--T. Alan Broughton, author of The Horsemaster
