"The Meagre Tarmac" is master storywriter Clark Blaise's first new collection of short fiction in nearly two decades. A suite of linked stories about the trials and tribulations of several generations of Indo Americans, "The Meagre Tarmac" reminds readers why Blaise is one of the most important storywriters of his generation, and a true North American treasure. This is vintage Blaise: stories straddling borders, clashing cultures and traditions, poverty, affluence, despair, and hope, offering an outsider's view of the changing heart of America that is both ruthless and profoundly moving

Pittsburgh stories by Clark Blaise( Book )

6 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pittsburgh Stories is the second volume in Clark Blaise's Selected Stories. The first collection, Southern Stories, was published in the year 2000. A total of four volumes is projected. Pittsburgh Stories contains such familiar Blaise standards as Grids and Doglegs' and The Seizure' but also offers entirely new uncollected stories such as Sitting Shiva with Cousin Benny' and The Waffle Maker' which reveal Blaise at the height of his powers. The Oxford Companion to Twentieth Century Literature in English says of Clark Blaise: His short stories are widely considered to represent his central achievement.' These forthcoming volumes can only enhance his considerable international reputation. These stories are polished and raw at the same time.' - Joel Janofsky, Montreal Gazette The pieces collected ... display the sure hand of a skilled writer. And though Blaise is unflinching is his portrayal of the poverty and backwardness of the post-war American South, a muted sense of wonder leads the reader over some very rough terrain.' - James Grainger, Quill & Quire Blaise has the writer's gift of recalling childhood textures in cinematic detail.' - Ray Conlogue, The Globe and Mail
