David James Poissant at Bookmark It for Wine and Sign

by Darlyn Finch Kuhn on May 21, 2015


In the final Friday of National Short Story Month, Bookmark It (3201 Corrine Drive Orlando, Florida 32803) will host David James Poissant at a wine and sign for his book, The Heaven of Animals from 6pm-8pm, May 29.

In each of the stories in this remarkable debut, award-winning writer David James Poissant explores the tenuous bonds of family—fathers and sons, husbands and wives—as they are tested by the sometimes brutal power of love. His strikingly true-to-life characters have reached a precipice, chased there by troubles of their own making. Standing at the brink, each must make a choice: Leap, or look away? Pulitzer Prize finalist Lee Martin writes that Poissant forces us “to face the people we are when we’re alone in the dark.”
