The Next New WorldeBook - 2014
The haunting stories in The Next New World have a directness, an immediacy, a funny, sexy quality that belongs to today, yet they are infused with an aura of history. The characters are outrageous originals who through Shacochis's telling, become eerily familiar: two elderly sisters share a phantom lover; a Virginia patriarch, haunted by ghosts of Confederate soldiers, is buried with their bones; a family celebrates the Fourth of July in the shadow of the father's Alzheimer's syndrome; a musician's thunderous love turns him into a cannibal.
