Tales from the Art Crypt Julius Knipl
In The Beauty Supply District, a new twenty-four-page story, Knipl attends an evening concert and unwittingly enters the world of wholesale empathizers and chiaroscuro brokers who make the decisions critical to the production of aesthetic pleasure in all its forms -- from the shape of an olive jar to the score of a string quartet.
 
The Circus Fire The Circus Fire
In The Circus Fire, Stewart O'Nan recounts the true horror of a 1944 circus fire that festered in a waterproof tent, leaving over one hundred fifty dead and the city of Hartford, Connecticut scarred for eternity.

From tales of heroism to horrific descriptions of wounds and death, O'Nan has compiled a book that is consuming and tragically unforgettable.
