Quick Overview

Quick as a spark struck from a flint, Buzz Poole’s vivid characters propel through his stories and land squarely on the windy side of things—some better, some worse for the trouble, and all some distance from whence they came. As they peer into the treasures of the soil and out the windows of the gambling train, collecting golf balls and scheming from the driver’s seat of the ice cream truck, they leave indelible marks on the worlds they navigate.

Details

I Like to Keep My Troubles on the Windy Side of Things gathers brand new stories as well as some previously published in Washington Square, Spork, and [SIC], among other magazines. This pocket-sized book features original art by John Mejias of Paping.

“Buzz Poole is a daring and original voice in American storytelling. As they veer from the bizarre to the sublime, these short pieces display startling insight and inventiveness, as well as a thrilling ability to improvise.” — Adam Mansbach, author of Angry Black White Boy

"A well-titled pocket story collection where the words roll out like a trek across a Texas highway and it's hard not to picture yourself eating cold beer and greasy eggs with Buzz in some dusty nowhere diner."—Quimby's
