PISSING OFF THE ARIZONA: a largely true fiction c.1991

Stoneybluff Pub

Sort of a malattributed memoir and sometimes fact-based novel with a contemporaneous look at the world in 1991.

Follow "the hero of our story" Wendel Gordon-Smith, who sees things differently, through a book that talks about pretty much everything except Wendel Gordon-Smith, the hero of our story who sees things differently.

About the author

G. MacGuffin was a traveling circus clown from age 19 for a bit, then a musician on the road and otherwise for a much longer bit. In the early 1990s he wanted to be a writer for a living. But after getting published a few times and paid for it, he went to law school instead.

He uses a pseudonym so as not to mess with his RL SEO. (Also, he was 27 when he wrote this, and a different dude than now.)

NATIONAL BOOK AWARD FINALIST • NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • “Spectacular . . . [Téa Obreht] spins a tale of such marvel and magic in a literary voice so enchanting that the mesmerized reader wants her never to stop.”—Entertainment Weekly 

Look for Téa Obreht’s second novel, Inland, coming August 13, 2019. 

NAMED ONE OF THE TEN BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times • Entertainment Weekly • The Christian Science Monitor • The Kansas City Star • Library Journal

Weaving a brilliant latticework of family legend, loss, and love, Téa Obreht, the youngest of The New Yorker’s twenty best American fiction writers under forty, has spun a timeless novel that will establish her as one of the most vibrant, original authors of her generation.

In a Balkan country mending from war, Natalia, a young doctor, is compelled to unravel the mysterious circumstances surrounding her beloved grandfather’s recent death. Searching for clues, she turns to his worn copy of The Jungle Book and the stories he told her of his encounters over the years with “the deathless man.” But most extraordinary of all is the story her grandfather never told her—the legend of the tiger’s wife.

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The Wall Street Journal • O: The Oprah Magazine • The Economist • Vogue • Slate • Chicago Tribune • The Seattle Times • Dayton Daily News • Publishers Weekly • Alan Cheuse, NPR’s All Things Considered

“Stunning . . . a richly textured and searing novel.”—Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times

“[Obreht] has a talent for subtle plotting that eludes most writers twice her age, and her descriptive powers suggest a kind of channeled genius. . . . No novel [this year] has been more satisfying.”—The Wall Street Journal  

“Filled with astonishing immediacy and presence, fleshed out with detail that seems firsthand, The Tiger’s Wife is all the more remarkable for being the product not of observation but of imagination.”—The New York Times Book Review

“That The Tiger’s Wife never slips entirely into magical realism is part of its magic. . . . Its graceful commingling of contemporary realism and village legend seems even more absorbing.”—The Washington Post

Then suddenly a catastrophic sequence of events leads to the unthinkable...
