Inhaltsangabe: Slippery Devils is a rich and eclectic collection of short stories by the award-winning writer Jason Bellipanni. Written over a period of fifteen years, many of the stories or excerpts thereof have appeared in literary journals, university composition texts, and international anthologies. Much of the collection appears in ?50 Stories: How to Read and Write Experimental Fiction? which has served as a university literature text for a number of years. The Story Review is proud to present Slippery Devils, which is the first comprehensive volume of Jason Bellipanni?s short fiction to be published for a general audience.
With a strong voice and a masterful manipulation of language, Bellipanni has created utterly original stories that evoke thought and emotion with equal skill. Slippery Devils is an artistic triumph that will linger in the reader?s mind long after they?ve finished reading the final story.
PRAISE FOR SLIPPERY DEVILS:
?The Last Elf-Mite most definitely did surprise me, like some skewed but ordinary Harold Pinter domestic episode eccentrically reworked by Isaac Asimov. I found it courageous and fastidious and unflinching in its courage. A writer well worth watching, I feel.?
Patrick McCabe, author of the Booker nominated novels The Dead School, and The Butcher Boy.
"Jason is a dazzling writer. Sharp-witted, linguistically interesting, and wholly original. The intellectual concepts behind his work are formidable and impressive, but they are woven into thematically rich but accessible narratives. He has enormous talent..."
Dean Bakopoulos, author of Please Don't Come Back from the Moon and My American Unhappiness
?I found Jason Bellipanni?s protagonist in ?Skin and Rain? to be one of the most compelling characters I?ve come across recently.?
Wanda Wade Mukherjee, Senior Editor, Paper Journey Press
"(Jason) writes with a fresh and captivating voice, and his stories gather momentum through accumulation of ingenious detail and observation. Jason?s fiction is driven by ideas and informed by experience. He strives to both create and solve situational dilemmas in generous and interesting ways.?
Lewis Robinson, author of Officer Friendly: Stories and Water Dogs
