Fever and delirium in a Delhi hotel, a highjacked bus in Mexico, a ghost in the mountains, an outlaw in a Camaro -- with cinematic immediacy, Elizabeth Haynes captures people at those moments in their lives when the past catches up with them. Sometimes that past is invited, sometimes it lies in ambush, waiting for a trick of light or a twist of fate to reveal it. It is never quite consoling.
In Speak Mandarin Not Dialect, Elizabeth Haynes's first collection of fiction, the author's eye is as keen and focused on the world of here and now as it is on the surfacing patterns for memory. Here are thirteen stories, thirteen lives, explored in a wholly original way.About the Author:
ELIZABETH HAYNES is Assistant Professor of Library and Information Science at the University of Southern Mississippi, Hattiesburg.
