Tough love for literature

Episode 23: George Singleton, Stray Decorum

Leave a comment

This week’s a Mike pick: George Singleton’s new story collection, Stray Decorum (Dzanc Books), which is set in (mostly) small-town South Carolina and populated by men who are using their intelligence in all the wrong ways. Also there’s a monkey, and lots and lots of dogs. We also bring back our Judge A Book By Its Cover feature, take a couple potshots at Tucker Max, and blurb three more donors to our fundraising drive.
