This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: Romance for Delinquents features mismatched individuals struggling to connect with one another and place themselves in the world.

The collection contains more than stories of obsession, as many of the characters seek not only love but also deliverance. A fertility clinic worker reaches out to strangers to cure her own infertility and loss of hope, a children's composer struggles to overcome the tragedy of his first love, and an amusement park worker takes the final step to reach his soulmate and overcome his fear of heights. The stories contained in this collection explore love in all its forms: from young love which is eager to believe, to tenuous love shared between friends; from brotherly love born in isolation, to love as a social ritual presented for tabloids.

Klappentext: In stories that bring to mind Breece D'J Pancake and Harry Crews, but in a voice all their own, Michael Wayne Hampton's characters fight the hard fight--often facing a life and landscape as stubborn and unforgiving as a rusted engine bolt. Told in voices that are remarkable for their authenticity, Hampton's people are memorable, his prose is lapidary in its precision, and his stories are hard to forget.
    Rob Roberge, author of The Cost of Living

"Michael Wayne Hampton is a born storyteller. And that doesn't just mean he can spin a good yarn, the kind that keeps you ear-stuck and tongue-tied, listening hard. He also has the storyteller's art of absolute authenticity, fidelity to hard-knocked voices - while writing prose that lifts and transcends, that fiercely proclaims that through the ugly, all of us are living some kind of beautiful."
    Amber Sparks, author of May We Shed These Human Bodies

"These are bold, insistent stories of people dancing along the edges of epiphany and oblivion. Hampton's America is ragged, dangerous, and utterly engaging."
    Ian Stansel, author of Everybody's Irish
