About this title

Synopsis:

From the new American West comes a voice that is at once wicked and sad, hilarious and perverse. Mark Jude Poirier's Naked Pueblo is a raucous collection that transports the reader to the heart of Tucson, Arizona: from the trailer parks to the desert, all-night supermarkets to fresh suburban lawns.

In rapid-fire succession we meet the misfits of the new frontier--Harper, who'll cook up any amount of frijoles in return for a prayer to St. Jude, Charles Backenbrush and his exotic choice of school art projects, the Monkey Chow-chomping rock climbers, and more. Barflies and bankers, disaffected teenagers and dispirited retirees, all connected by the exquisitely detailed city of Tucson and their search for a place to call home in the ever-changing landscape of the West.

From the Back Cover:

"I think Naked Pueblo is an exciting first collection. Mark Poirier's prose has a kind of edgy rigor; his angle of attack is very original, aided by an eye that produces many surprises for his readers. Let's hope there will be a lot."        
-- Larry McMurtry

"Mark Jude Poirier is one of the most kinetic, most original young fiction writers we've read in a long time. Naked Pueblo, his absolutely maximalist, throw-everything-in-and-shake-it-up short story collection, buzzes like some kind of wacked-out fever dream."        
-- Esquire

"Mark Poirier's Barry Hannah-meets-South Park short stories erupt on the page. His vision of apocalyptic Arizona--with its campy piglets, self-righteous sluts, and macho losers--is as hilarious as it is unsettling. This book is a thrilling antidote to the 'quiet well-crafted' stories that threaten our culture."
-- Ben Neihart, author of Burning Girl
