Oregon author, Stevan Allred: A Simplified Map of the Real World.

Between the Covers welcomes Oregon author and creative writing teacher, Stevan Allred.  His debut linked short story collection, A Simplified Map of the Real World, is the first fiction release of local publisher, Forest Avenue Press.  Fifteen linked stories chart a true course through the lives of families, farmers, loggers and former classmates in the richly imagined town of Renata, Oregon. 

"In A Simplified Map of the Real World, intimate boundaries are loosened by divorce and death in a rural community where even an old pickle crock has an unsettling history—and high above the strife and the hope and the often hilarious, geese seek the perfect tailwind. Stevan Allred’s stunning debut deftly navigates the stubborn geography of the human heart."

Culture-jammers extraordinaire John Law and Carrie Galbraith join host S.W. Conser for a special hour-long edition of Between the Covers.

Some twenty-odd years ago, John and Carrie (inadvertently) helped found the Burning Man Arts Festival and the Billboard Liberation Front, and have now co-authored a new coffee-table history of Bay-area pranksterism, Tales of the San Francisco Cacophony Society, with the help of artist Kevin Evans.

In addition to our studio conversation, we'll be including audio from John and Carrie's recent standing-room-only appearance at Powell's Books as well as Portland's underground Night Market event.

The Middlesteins with Jami Attenberg
The Middlesteins with Jami Attenberg

For more than thirty years, Edie and Richard Middlestein shared a solid family life together in the suburbs of Chicago. But now things are splintering apart, for one reason, it seems: Edie's enormous girth. She's obsessed with food--thinking about it, eating it--and if she doesn't stop, she won't have much longer to live. With pitch-perfect prose, huge compassion, and sly humor, Jami Attenberg has given us an epic story of marriage, family, and obsession. The Middlesteins explores the hopes and heartbreaks of new and old love, the yearnings of Midwestern America, and our devastating, fascinating preoccupation with food.  David Naimon hosts.

Comments

Timber Beasts

I've read the book twice and rather hoped to hear the program that the author spoke on the book. But that page was not available on your site. Anyway, I loved the book. I thought it was an exciting dose of history. Stoner brought the Portland of  1900 to life. There was intrigue that kept my interest throughout the book.

I was washing eggs at the farm when this came on. I loved it and looked for it to share with my peeps!
