Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Ian Randall Wilson has published stories in many prestigious publications. Novelist Ronald Alexander says of this collection, "Wilson sees the world in all its absurdity." It's the strangeness that Wilson sees as ordinary, his whimsical sense of humor and his marvelous facility with language that drew us to publish his new collection. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

Can a recent college graduate find his way to Absolute Knowledge and the love of his life asks the title story in Absolute Knowledge: Stories. A struggling writer sees prison poets getting first books published and decides to get arrested to advance his career in "Three Strikes People." A 12-year tries to become a stuntman in "In the Space Between Stairs." Fat men do make the best dancers we learn in "Sometimes Rest Is Always Good." The collection features several more stories observing life as a more than a bit off-center, where desires are thwarted and love is just out of reach, but sometimes people do get what they want though not in the way they expected it. Often funny, lyrical and incisive, Absolute Knowledge: Stories showcases Wilson's amazing style and gift for storytelling. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
