Top customer reviews
In his extraordinarily rich and growing body of work are at least four short story collections that I’m aware of, as well as several excellent screenplays. Writing with a very light touch in a sort of neo-Southern Gothic prose, Phillip has a superb command of atmosphere and dialogue as well as compassion for his expansive cast of unforgettable characters. They often hold court in the Paradise Lounge, a small-town Southern bar where lovers and losers search for the remnants of love. His stories are alternately funny, bizarre, tragic and elegiac. We come away from them moved and enriched by Phillip’s colorful, meticulous portrayal of his particular place in our tumultuous time.
