Mark Lyons' remarkable story collection Brief Eulogies at Roadside Shrines is being released on October 7.
Building on the tradition of roadside "story shrines," Lyons introduces a motley and vivid cast of characters, including a hobo who prides himself on his roadkill cookery, a returning soldier who raises pigeons, and a snake-charming preacher.
Watch for this book wherever good fiction is sold -- and perhaps wherever the dinner menu includes stewed vulture.
Though the official pub. date is a couple of months away, it looks as though the book can already be ordered on Amazon and preordered through IndieBound.
