Fiction. These fourteen stories move from backwoods Arkansas to concrete jungles, from churches to prison cells, from delusions to truth. "In TAPEWORM, Morris has his finger on the jackhammering pulse of the world within the world where the culture does its fiercest living. Luminous and livid, comfortingly familiar and disturbingly strange..."--Laird Hunt.

Review:

In Tapeworm, Morris has his finger on the jackhammering pulse of the world within the world where the culture does its fiercest living. Luminous and livid, comfortingly familiar and disturbingly strange . . . --Laird Hunt, author of Ray of the Star

Nick Morris's sharply drawn characters occupy those unique American zones where Urban Legends are born and tabloid headlines are manufactured for the five o clock news. In Tapeworm his people s fifteen minutes of local fame or ignominy usually are ignited by a manic desperation, although some sympathetic souls simply wander into their fates. A skillful and bemused black humor lightens his 'If It Bleeds It Leads' tales of runaway public folly and hubris. --Keith Abbott, author of Downstream from Trout Fishing in America: A Memoir of Richard Brautigan
