Vice, Brad. Athens, GA: University of Georgia Press (2005). First Edition. Quarter cloth with silver lettering. xiii, 170 pages. Minor bump to tail of spine, else Fine. “The nine stories in this debut collection, set mostly in a well-drawn rural South, gorgeously examine loneliness and its companion, longing. Vice has a gift for making the extraordinary plausible, for rendering complex motivations in spare but metaphoric language and searing details.” – PW Book: Fine. Dust Jacket: Fine.
