Town Stories Reissued
Press Coverage about me

You are going to love the stories in TOWN SMOKES, Pinckney Benedict's very first collection of stories. Published almost exactly 25 years ago, I think it can legitimately be called a classic. Dzanc has brought it back as an ebook. (You can also find copies floating around on the Internet)

If you don't believe me, then listen to Miss Eudora, who blurbed it back in the day...

"With the appearance of Town Smokes we are beyond question in the presence of a strong talent. It is one assured and also venturesome; we have been introduced to an original." —Eudora Welty
