WHAT IT’S ABOUT:
CALLOUSTOWN, the seventh collection from master raconteur George Singleton, who’s been praised by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution as the “unchallenged king of the comic Southern short story,” finds the author at the absolute top of his game as he traces the unlikely inhabitants of the titular Calloustown in all their humanity. Whether exploring family, religion, politics or the true meaning of home, these stories range from deeply affecting to wildly absurd and back again, all in the blink of an eye.

"Thank God for George Singleton, who makes us laugh and makes us think."
--The Times-Picayune (New Orleans, 2006)
