about this book

With Charity, the author of the PEN/Ernest Hemingway Foundation Award-winning short story collection The Ice at the Bottom of the World and the novel Fishboy, reaffirms his distinction as poet laureate of the orphaned poor, the broken, the deceived, and the unrelieved. Compared to Faulkner for his language and to Flannery O' Connor for his stark moral vision, Richard Mark visits the overlooked corners of America in this new collection which includes the much-anthologized "The Birds for Christmas," "Gentleman's Agreement," and "Memorial Day."
