The Anarchist's Convention and Other Stories
John SaylesISBN: 1560256915;
Book DescriptionBefore John Sayles was an Oscar-nominated screenwriter, he was a National Book Award-nominated writer of fiction. The Anarchists' Convention is his first short story collection, providing a prism of America through fifteen stories.These everyday people?a kid on the road heading west, aging political activists, a lonely woman in Boston?go about their business with humor and resilience, dealing more in possibility than fact. In the widely anthologized and O. Henry Award-winning "I-80 Nebraska," Sayles perfectly renders the image of a pill-popping trucker who has become a legend of the road.
