℗b3sIf we are in the golden age of the short story, Bob Shacochis is one of the writers who got us here." &́#x1b;p0b4sProvidence JournalThe haunting stories in The Next New World have a directness, an immediacy, a funny, sexy quality that belongs to today, yet they are infused with an aura of history. The characters are outrageous originals who through Shacochis's telling, become eerily familiar: two elderly sisters share a phantom lover; a Virginia patriarch, haunted by ghosts of Confederate soldiers, is buried with their bones; a family celebrates the Fourth of July in the shadow of the father's Alzheimer's syndrome; a musician's thunderous love turns him into a cannibal.℗b3sCharged with wit and style . . . Intelligent, engaging, and richly realized." &́#x1b;p0b4sNew York Times Book Review℗b3sShacochis is a master of voices. . . . In The Next New World he roams about through history and across the globe, tethering his wit to a sense of political conscience. . . . Sometimes more is more." &́#x1b;p0b4sMiami Herlad
