An Accumulation of Small Things
StatisticsView Usage Statistics
An Accumulation of Small Things is a collection of short stories rooted heavily in place – both the Texas Gulf Coast and the American West. Drawing on the traditions of other masters of the short story and Southern humor such as Barry Hannah and George Singleton, this is a collection which repeatedly explores the complexity of relationships, men navigating the expectations of masculinity, and the idea of self-mythologizing. Leaning heavily on first-person narration, these are stories particularly concerned with character, dialect, and voice.Spanning ten short stories, An Accumulation of Small Things is a completed work at approximately 40,000 words.
