Inhaltsangabe: A man named William Carlos Williams once said that a man in himself is a city, beginning, seeking, achieving and concluding his life in ways which the various aspects of a city may embody, (if imaginatively conceived), any city, all the details of which may be made to voice his most intimate convictions. And if a man is a city, a city is made of men. The city in this case is Pittsburgh and its outlaying areas, (its tributaries). Urbesque is a dual portrait, a portrait of the city and of the cities of men who comprise it. It is not a conventional portrait, but one seen in the corner of an eye, one gathered from the things left behind and, although each reader will leave with a different idea of what that portrait is, the truth of their simple details and convictions will continue to resonate long after the book is returned to the shelf.
Product Description: Fiction. URBESQUE is a collection of short (in the sense that most, though not all, of the pieces are shorter than forty pages) fiction (because they are untrue except, of course, for the parts that are). The characters who populate these stories do not travel to India or hang out with matadors. They do, however, go to job fairs, make furniture, leave their swords in the lockers at work, write letters to the objects that surround them and take pictures of it all, years after the fact, to remind them not to forget. If, one day, a copy of URBESQUE should appear unannounced on your doorstep, looking a little worse for wear, with whiskey on its breath, invite it in. Make room for it on your couch or bookshelf. Or, better yet, read it.
