about this item

Originally published in 2005, Between Here and the Yellow Sea thrust Nic Pizzolatto into the literary spotlight, earning mention as one ofPoets & Writers' top five fiction debuts of the year as well as a spont on the Frank O'Connor International Short Story Award shortlist. This updated edition features two previously uncollected stories--"Wanted Man" and "Graves of Light"--and showcases a modern-day master of the short story at the top of his game.
A reissue of Nic Pizzolatto's debut short story collection, now featuring two previously uncollected stories.

Set in a variety of Southern landscapes, these startling stories excavate the ambiguous terrain of the human heart. Pizzolatto finds beauty in loneliness as his characters attempt to bridge the gulfs between themselves and others, past and present, and, sometimes, the even wider chasms that separate them from their true selves.

In this stunning debut, a base-jumping, samurai park ranger parachutes off the St. Louis arch. A stained-glass artist struggles over his masterpiece for a castle in Southern Missouri and learns through great loss what his true subject will be. A schoolteacher searches for her missing son, her only clue a mysterious, paint-smeared stencil he left behind. And, in the title story, which first appeared in theAtlantic Monthly, an orphaned young man and his former high school football coach set out to kidnap the coach?s daughter from Los Angeles and bring her back to East Texas.

With a forceful and compassionate voice, Pizzolatto places us at the crossroads of memory and desire, longing and loss, somewhere between here and the Yellow Sea.
