You Want More: Selected Stories of George Singleton Cover Image
Coming Soon - Available for Pre-Order Now


With his signature darkly acerbic and sharp-witted humor, George Singleton has built a reputation as one of the most astute and wise observers of the South. Now Tom Franklin introduces this master of the form with a compilation of acclaimed and prize-winning short fiction spanning twenty years and eight collections, including stories originally published in outlets like the Atlantic Monthly, Harper's, Playboy, the Georgia Review, the Southern Review, and many more. These stories bear the influence of Flannery O'Connor and Raymond Carver, at other times Barry Hannah and Donald Barthelme, and touch on the mysteries of childhood, the complexities of human relationships, and the absurdity of everyday life, with its inexorable defeats and small triumphs.

Assembled here for the very first time, You Want More represents a body of work that showcases the incisive talent that earned George Singleton's place among "the great pillars of Southern literature." (The New York Times)
