We will be reading "The Fourth Corner of the World," by Scott Nadelson (available in paperback and eBook) “The characters in Scott Nadelson's latest collection abandon their lands of origin, sever their roots, and distance themselves from the people they once were. These stories roam geographically and historically, featuring a would-be assassin in 1920s Paris, Jewish utopians in 1880s Oregon, teenage girls seeking revenge in 1980s New Jersey, and modern-day suburbanites writing the stories of their own lives among their casts of beautifully rendered outcasts and seekers.”
