New Book by Don Tassone: New Twists

ADELAIDE BOOKS is proud to offer the latest work by Don Tassone New Twists hitting stores everywhere now.

The 20 stories featured in this collection are based on abiding themes but with new twists, stories that explore old ideas in today’s world. What does tolerance look like, for example, at a time of such great divisiveness? Fifteen of these stories are longer. Five are very short. All are an invitation to think anew.

Don Tassone’s thoughtful new collection of wide-ranging stories delves into the connections made throughout our lives—from the perils of teenage angst to the precariousness of life at the top of the corporate world. Communications play a huge part—by iPhone, executive phone, in heartfelt handwritten letters, and even when the characters find themselves off the grid. Tassone knows whereof he speaks, and the “New Twists” ring true! – Mary Ann Presman, author of The Good Dishes

With authority and compassion, Don Tassone brings his characters to life on the page and makes us care about them—whether a teenage Mexican immigrant who resents his hard-working father or a hardboiled executive prepared to fire her mentor. You find yourself pulling for these characters as they reach small epiphanies or suffer shattering disappointments and loss. – John Young, author of When the Coin is in the Air

After a long career in the corporate world, Don Tassone has returned to his creative writing roots. New Twists is his fifth book. The others are Drive, a novel, and three other short story collections: Sampler, Small Bites and Get Back. Don and his wife Liz live in Loveland, Ohio. They have four children.

New Book by Jeffrey Kass: The Rona Diaries

ADELAIDE BOOKS is proud to offer the latest work by Timothy Ryan Day Big Sky hitting stores everywhere now.

One of the most violent chapters in American history is also one of the least discussed. BIG SKY aims to illuminate the events of the Tulsa race riots in a modern, high-paced story that combines historical fiction, magical realism, and a fresh voice. BIG SKY follows its main character, an unsuccessful rock musician of mixed race from Chicago, as he hitchhikes to his stepmother’s funeral in Tulsa, Oklahoma soon after the beginning of the new millennium. The story that unfolds as he makes his way is one of two families, one white, the other black, who were tied together by the events of Tulsa’s 1921 race riots. One family followed an industrial and political path that may be endangered by the other’s artistic and journalistic pursuits that emanate from a grandfather who was one part Heidegger, one part Nostradamus, and one part James Baldwin. The main character is followed on his journey South by a brilliant if sinister biologist who may have the key to their interconnection.

Timothy Ryan Day was born in Tulsa, grew up in Chicago and lives in Spain where he teaches writing and Literature at Saint Louis University. He has taught at Universities in China, Arizona and Spain. Along with his wife he runs restaurants in Madrid that focus on local products and literary events. His work has appeared in forums such as Green Letters, The Nervous Breakdown, and The Toucan, among others. His poetry collection Green & Grey was published by Lemon Street Press in 2019. He has a book on Shakespeare and Ecocriticism scheduled for publication by Routledge in 2020.
