Books Info:

Trailer Girl and Other Stories free pdf In this stunningly original collection of seventeen short stories, Terese Svoboda navigates a terrain of alienation and loss with searing, poetic prose. I talk like a lady who knows what she wants, begins the vagrant narrator of the title story. She insists there s a wild child hiding among the cows in the gully near her home. Others in the trailer park think it s just herself she s chasing, but no one helps her sort out the truth until there s a murder. Stark and disturbing, Trailer Girl is a story of cycles of child abuse and the dream to escape them.In Psychic a clairvoyant knows she s been hired by a murderer, in Leadership a tiny spaceship lands between a boy and his parents, in Lost the Baby a partying couple forget where they dropped off their baby, and in White a grandfather explains to his grandson how a family is like a collection of chicken parts.Frequently violent, always passionate, these often short short stories are not the condensed versions of longer works but are full-strength, as strong and precise as poetry.Watch the "Trailer Girl" book trailer on YouTube."
