2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Here is the story of a little boy from the tiny community of Lincoln Park, Pennsylvania, who grew up to become that most anomalous of things: a famous book jacket designer. Along the way he worked very hard, met a lot of interesting people, and eventually came to understand that being a famous book jacket designer and exactly two dollars and fifty-eight cents would get him a dopio espresso macchiato at Starbucks. Period. But that was okay by him--as long as he had lots of engaging work, an acceptable roof over his head, and someone nice to wake up next to. And two dollars and fifty-eight cents. He did and he does, and the fruits of more than twenty years of labor are gathered herein. He very much wants you to take a look and see what you think, but will definitely understand if you don't have the time."--Jacket

6 editions published in 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In an Ivy League town, Bloom turns Yale's motto--Lux et Veritas--on its head, finding darkness and deceit in every corner of New Haven ... The stories Bloom chooses share a strong sense of place, detailing the quirks that make every corner of New Haven distinctive. But it's the lucid writing and clear, compelling storylines that make her dark tales shine. Maybe she offers a noir version of Light and Truth after all."

Night train : new and selected stories by Thom Jones( Book )

5 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A posthumous and definitive collection of new and selected stories by "virtuoso of the short story" (Esquire) and National Book Award finalist Thom Jones. This scorching collection from award-winning author Thom Jones features his best new short fiction alongside a selection of outstanding stories from three previous books. Jones's stories are full of high-octane, prose-drunk entertainment. His characters are grifters and drifters, rogues and ne'er-do-wells, would-be do-gooders whose human frailties usually get the better of them. Some are lovable, others are not, but each has an indelible and irresistible voice. They include Vietnam soldiers, amateur boxers, devoted doctors, strung-out advertising writers, pill poppers and veterans of the psych ward, and an unforgettable adolescent DJ radio host, among others. The stories here are excursions into a unique world that veers between abject desperation and fleeting transcendence. Perhaps no other writer in recent memory could encapsulate in such short spaces the profound and the devastating, the poignant and the hallucinatory, with such an exquisite balance of darkness and light. Jones's fiction reveals again and again the resilience and grace of characters who refuse to succumb. In stories that can at once delight us with their wicked humor and sting us with their affecting pathos, Night Train perfectly captures the essence of this iconic American master, showcasing in a single collection the breadth of power of his inimitable fiction."--Dust jacket front flap
