About the Book (Excerpts & Info)
Sometimes comical, always moving, and often starkly painful, the stories in this unique collection share one overriding similarity: an extraordinary ability to reveal the deep psychological complexities of the human experience. In All Points North, author Shelby Lee targets the unseen mental landscape that informs our daily lives. Here are 13 short stories that trace the roots of grief, anger, psychological torment and sorrow, and shine a much needed light on our seemingly unexplainable behavior and attitudes. In “The Famous Duck Hunt,” a young man’s romantic fascination with the rustic life collides with the dark reality and horror of an ordinary hunting outing. In “Boy Freud,” a longtime patient uncovers the unorthodox—and illegal—treatments of his psychologist. In “Under Veiled Thought,” a “chemical hypnotic interview” succeeds only in making life worse for an obsessive-compulsive patient who can’t stop taking showers. “Typical American Attitudes” examines the reality of dysfunctional family dynamics that are only revealed when the doors are shut. And that’s just for starters. A wide-ranging and ambitious collection, All Points North is a remarkable first work as intricate and nuanced as its subject matter.
Deftly constructed at 191 pages, All Points North is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the Fiction / Fantasy / Short Stories category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, All Points North meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $15.95.
Additionally, All Points North can be ordered by retailers or wholesalers for the maximum trade discount price set by the author in quantities of ten or more from the Outskirts Press Direct bookstore at www.outskirtspress.com/bookstore
