Susco writes to both the mentally ill and those who have no experience with the ill to illuminate, heal, and come to terms. From various perspectives, Susco weaves a portrait that is evocative and meaningful in a collection that deals with how mental illness is experienced and how it is passed down generation to generation. It’s about how it is made peace with, dealt with, and ultimately how it is endured. BEAN SPILLER is an important statement, fighting the good fight against suffering and stigma and fighting for a new, better way to see mental illness.
Carroll Ann Susco has an M.F.A. from the University of Pittsburgh in fiction and numerous publications, including three in The Sun Magazine and two in The Blood Pudding. Her short story "Sinking" was made into a film, renamed Burned, and won best narrative at the Ohio Film Festival. She is schizoaffective bipolar type.
A teenage girl runs away from the foster care system when new daddy tries to molest her. She takes a bus to New York City where she’s assaulted by two men. A government agent passing by on an urgent mission sees her trying to fight off her attackers, admires her courage and rescues her. She witnesses the agent deal violently with a drug dealer and his cartel guards. He is so impressed by her attitude that he takes her to a secret training facility that prepares qualified teens to be special government operatives. His rescue leads her to a life of action and adventure.
Gary Beck has spent most of his adult life as a theater director and worked as an art dealer when he couldn't earn a living in the theater. He has also been a tennis pro, a ditch digger and a salvage diver. His original plays and translations of Moliere, Aristophanes and Sophocles have been produced Off Broadway. His poetry, fiction and essays have appeared in hundreds of literary magazines and his published books include 40 poetry collections, 15 novels, 4 short story collections, 2 collection of essays and 8 books of plays. Gary lives in New York City.
Includes stories about family dysfunction in a not-so-blended family, work, Adolf Hitler’s imagined alternative lives and possible reincarnation, the spirit of Kurt Cobain, a green angel giving an aging alcoholic man a second chance at redemption, men struggling to find some meaning in their lives, and more. Many of these stories deal with feelings of alienation and abandonment, and feelings of the characters that they do not fit in in their families, their lives, their jobs, or, sometimes, in their very bodies.
