Recommended Read: It’s All True (although it may not have happened) by Renato Bratkovič

it's all trueIt’s All True (although it may not have happened) by Slovenian writer  Renato Bratkovič is a short, sharp story collection that views the world askew.

Stand out stories for me are ‘Fat Fatale’, ‘High Midnight’ and ‘Bicycle Thieves’.

Like a strange hybrid of Gogol and Frederick Brown, It’s All True (although it may not have happened) blends noir, horror, black comedy and absurdity.

Recommended Read: Awake Now, Sailor by Eddie Vega

awake now sailorCass Loyola is a Cuban merchant seaman turned New York poet who is struggling to make ends meet in the big apple. Jobless and on the verge of losing his home, he begins an affair the wife of a rich banker and his life spirals even more out of control.

Eddie Vega’s Awake Now, Sailor is rich in terms of writing, incident and character. Moving and frequently humorous, Awake Now, Sailor  is a marvelous read.
