The Body of This (Hardcover)
Andrew McNabb’s ethereal debut story collection, The Body of This, is a gathering of tough, close, and spiritual stories illuminating the complex architecture of people and their places.
With writing as raw as it is powerful, McNabb’s stories will by turns shock and delight: a man gives up a winning lottery ticket to keep his wandering girlfriend; a Sudanese refugee discovers the simple beauty of a new way home; a mother sees her true self reflected in her newborn son’s albinism; an awkward seminarian seeks a wife during a single night out. One thing is certain, these are unusual stories that will entertain and, as good fiction often does, leave the reader lightly dazed and wondering.
Informed by a deep, real-life spirituality, Andrew McNabb’s award-winning stories have appeared in such diverse literary venues as The Missouri Review, and Not Safe, But Good: Best Christian Short Stories, 2007.
