9780982440582: Faded Love

Hard living, missed opportunities, and dogged persistence in the pursuit of impossible dreams are themes that help unite the linked stories in Jim Sanderson's fine new story cycle Faded Love. The characters Sanderson weaves in and out of these sometimes side-splitting, sometimes gut-wrenching stories are people whose poignantly-rendered lives resonate long after the last page has been turned. Faded Love was a finalist for the Texas Institute of Letter's 2010 Jesse Jones award, given to the best book about Texas or about a Texan.  The Texas Institute of Letters, established in 1936, is the most prestigious literary organization in Texas.

From the Author:

              Once I write a story, I often want to give the supporting characters their due, so I write stories for them or put them in other stories. And sometimes I let characters that I've used before interrupt stories that they aren't supposed to be in. So the stories in Part I and II are best read in order. In Part II, "Hemingway's Lighthouse" and "Oasis of Love" belong together. Part IV crams all the characters into one story.

            Then too, to me, a story, no matter how long, just always seems slightly static, unable to capture our sense of time passing, of our own passing. But even though I never thought that I would write series, I discovered that, to me, related stories, no matter how long, whether written or read, may better approximate our sense of time passing, of our own passing. So I also discovered that all my stories, no matter how long, were related.  So characters in this collection show up in my other works, both published and unpublished.

About the Author:

            In the thirty years that I have been writing seriously, I have been given many labels, emphasis on the passive voice. I went from being an "aspiring writer" to a "working class, Texas" writer when I won the Kenneth Patchen Prize (92) and had my short story collection, Semi-Private Rooms, published (Pig Iron Press, 1995). With the publication of my essay collection, A West Texas Soapbox (1998, Texas A & M Press), I became a Texas humorist and essayist. When I won the 1997 Frank Waters Prize--given for the best novel about the southwest, I was a new "rural Southwestern literary writer." When the novel that won that prize, El Camino del Rio (University of New Mexico Press, 1998) came out and my editor labeled it a "mystery," I became a mystery writer. With the University of New Mexico Press's publication of two more novels, Safe Delivery (2000, Violet Crown Award finalist) and La Mordida (2002), I became a "literary mystery writer." With the publication of Nevin's History (Texas Tech University Press, 2004), I became a "historical writer" or a "Western writer." In addition, I have about sixty published short stories, essays, and scholarly articles, so to the few people who read these journals, I am an academic or literary writer. So I'm not sure what kind of writer I am, and sometimes I'm not sure that I am a writer at all because I don't depend on writing to eat. For a living, I serve as a professor of English and as Writing Director at Lamar University. As a professor, I teach, but I'm not sure what I do as Writing Director--though I do work with other writers who cannot be labeled precisely with formulated phrase.
