Read full description of the books:
From the author of the acclaimed novel THE SNOWMAN'S CHILDREN and the award-winning collection THE TWO SAMS comes American Morons, a new collection of dazzling and haunting tales...
Two traveling college students confront their disintegrating relationship and the new American reality in a breakdown lane along the Italian Superstrade. A woman chases the ghost of her neglectful father to a vanished amusement park at the end of the Long Beach pier. Two recently retired teachers learn just how much Los Angeles has taken from them.
In these atmospheric, wide-ranging, surprisingly playful, and deeply mournful stories, grandkids and widows, ice cream-truck drivers and judges, travelers and invalids all discover -- and sometimes even survive -- the everyday losses from which the most vengeful ghosts so often spring.

Read information about the authorGlen Hirshberg is currently hard at work on the final book in the Motherless Children Trilogy, the sequel to Good Girls and Motherless Child (2012; 2014), the blood-soaked, "terrifying...breakneck midnight ride through a part of America too seldom visited in fiction" (Elizabeth Hand) which Ramsey Campbell says is: “a virtuoso display of Glen Hirshberg's considerable talents, ranging from uncanny poetry to breathless suspense. ... We can be sure horror fiction is still vital when it's reimagined as freshly and vigorously as this.”
Previous books include his first novel, The Snowman's Children (2002); International Horror Guild Award winners The Two Sams (2003--also a Publisher's Weekly Best Book of the Year) and American Morons (2006); The Book of Bunk (2010), about which the late Lucius Shepherd wrote, "It's as if Woody Guthrie and Jeff Vandermeer has called "powerful, sad, ecstatic, and above all, a clear sign that the uniquely American novel is alive and well;" and the Shirley Jackson Award winning collection The Janus Tree (2011).
Glen's shorter work can also be found in numerous "Best of" anthologies. With Motherless Child.
Neither a surfer nor a race-car driver, Glen enjoys a heart pounding game of racquetball followed by a strong cup of coffee. Born in Detroit, Glen earned degrees from Columbia University and the University of Montana. In an alternate reality, he spends a lot of time on a deep sea submarine as a marine biologist, but in this one, he writes, writes, teaches, writes, drinks coffee, reads, listens to music, and lives in the Los Angeles area with his wife and children.
From an interview with Kristin Centorcelli at SF Signal: "I grew up mostly in Detroit. My mother was a psychologist, my father a designer and painter, and I think their influence still resonates through everything I write. I can’t draw a straight line, but I love painting with the language, and what interests me most in stories, even the spooky ones, is the way people respond to and discover one another as their lives unfold or unravel."
