Tiny Love: The Complete Stories of Larry Brown | Larry Brown
3 posts | 1 to read
"Larry Brown wrote the way the best singers sing: with honesty, grit, and the kind of raw emotion that stabs you right in the heart. He was a singular American treasure." Tim McGraw A career-spanning collection, Tiny Love brings together for the first time the stories of Larry Browns previous collections along with those never before gathered. The self-taught Brown has long had a cult following, and this collection comes with an intimate and heartfelt appreciation by novelist Jonathan Miles. We see Brown's early forays into genre fiction and the horror story, then develop his fictional gaze closer to home, on the people and landscapes of Lafayette County, Mississippi. And whats astonishing here is the odyssey these stories chart: Browns self-education as a writer and the incredible artistic journey he navigated from Plant Growin Problems to A Roadside Resurrection. This is the whole of Larry Brown, the arc laid bare, both an amazing story collection and the fullest portrait well see of one of the Souths most singular artists.

My first reading of the written works of Larry Brown. His stories have been described as “gritty” and “real”. Definitely agree with those descriptions. Favorite stories in this collection are “Tiny Love”, “Sleep”, & “A Roadside Resurrection.” Trigger warnings for racial slurs, sexism, & drunk driving. These stories may not be what I am used to reading, but there are elements of brilliance in the prose. #LibraryThingEarlyReviewer #AlgonquinBooks
