Facing the end of summer will be a little easier this year when you’re caught up in a great book. Bacon Press Books will be releasing our next title, The Man Who Built Boxes and other stories by Frank Tavares, at the end of August. This is a debut collection by an already accomplished story teller.
Advanced review: 'This is a writer you'll want to know . . ."
“Too often, life stuns us with nuances and a mix of emotions that need time and patience to digest. Frank Tavares’ greatest gift is in delivering all of these layers and textures in a single pass, and doing so with a beautiful taste of humor to make it all palatable. The stories contained in The Man Who Built Boxes run the whole gamut from painful to absurd to pure joy and comedy, but they never depart from the complexity of real life. Tavares never betrays what it means to be human in today’s world, nor does he ignore how difficult it is to remain humane in the face of life’s trials. This is a writer you’ll want to know, writing a life you’ll be happy you’ve lived in for a while.” Jack B. Bedell, author of Bone-Hollow, True: New & Selected Poems and Director of Louisiana Literature Press

Look for it on Amazon. You’ll be so caught up in the cast of unusual characters, you won’t even notice when the temperatures drop and the leaves start to turn.
