October book signing at Burke’s

By Corey Mesler
Darlin’ Neal will be at Burke’s Book Store on Thursday, October 7, from 5:30-7pm, to read from and sign copies of her first collection of short fiction, Rattlesnakes and the Moon (Press 53, $14, paperback). The reading will begin at 6pm. This event coincides with the October CY Thursday Night Out.
Frederick Barthelme, author of Waveland, wrote, “These [Rattlesnakes and the Moon] are dark stories lit by headlights and lightning, fluorescent signs and tall highway lights, tough stories so real that they have the scent of the lived-through about them, which is testament to Darlin’ Neal’s extraordinary gift for prose and story.”
“Darlin’ Neal’s book of stories is the literary equivalent of a Lucinda Williams music album…,” praised Antonya Nelson, author of Nothing Right: Short Stories.
Darlin’ Neal is a native Mississippian whose work has appeared in The Southern Review, Shenandoah, Smokelong Quarterly, and dozens of other magazines. She is currently an assistant professor in the MFA program at The University of Central Florida.
If there are any questions concerning this event, please contact Corey Mesler at (901) 278-7484.
