Synopsis: A collection of short stories by the award-winning author of They Whisper features such tales as "Boy Born With Elvis Tatoo,""Titanic Victim Speaks Through Water Bed," and "Woman Uses Glass Eye to Spy on Cheating Husband." 50,000 first printing.

Review: Robert Olen Butler's last short story collection, A Good Scent from a Strange Mountain, was a keen, piercing book told largely in the voice of Vietnamese immigrants to America. To say that his new collection is a departure is an understatement: Butler has taken actual headlines from the more outrageous of the supermarket tabloids and fashioned short fiction around them. Headlines such as "Titanic Victim Speaks Through Waterbed," "Woman Loses Cookie Bake-Off, Sets Self on Fire," and "Every Man She Kisses Dies" are the starting points for this quirky volume from one of the most original American writers at work today.
