4 Reviews

Rated 0

Fiction, Thriller / suspense, Short stories

Crimes, drama, hard choices and the dark side of sunny California feature in this awardwinning short story collection from critically acclaimed author Richard Lange.

Winner of the CWA Short Story Dagger. Every life is uncertain. Every choice is a danger.

Set on the dark side of Los Angeles, this is a masterful collection of edge-of-your-seat tales: a prison guard must protect an inmate being tried for heinous crimes. A father and son set out to rescue a young couple trapped during a wildfire after they cross the border. An ex-con trying to make good as a security guard stumbles onto a burglary plot. A young father must submit to blackmail to protect the fragile life he's built.

Sweet Nothing is an intense and gripping journey through real lives with big problems, from one of America's great short story writers.

Praise for Sweet Nothing: Stories

  • Lange's stories are knockouts. Gritty, humane, and utterly urban.

  • Lange's morality tales are not that far removed from the classic stories of O. Henry and Guy de Maupassant. With a distinctive style, Lange makes his downbeat tales of the underclass quirkily entertaining. - Kirkus

  • Richard Lange's stories are a revelation. He writes of the disaffections and bewilderments of ordinary lives with as keen an anger and searing lyricism as anybody out there today. He is Raymond Carver reborn in a hard cityscape. Read him and be amazed.

  • A natural-born storyteller
