George Singleton’s New Short Story Collection

This is the rescheduled date for an event that was previously postponed.

George Singleton will visit City Lights Bookstore to present his new collection of stories on Saturday, February 6th at 3 p.m. Calloustown, Singleton’s seventh collection, finds the author at the top of his game as he traces the unlikely inhabitants of the fictional Calloustown in all their humanity. Whether exploring family, religion, politics, or the true meaning of home, these stories range from deeply affecting to wildly absurd and back again in the blink of an eye. Tom Franklin, author of Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter, said, “If you read only one book this year, make it Calloustown. George Singleton is the best kind of genius, a mad one, and while his stories are acts of mad genius, they are also acts of great skill, acts of great compassion, acts of great intelligence. These are stories not to be missed.”
