More About This Book

Overview

Lewis Turco's short fiction has been appearing since 1965 in such venues as The Alaska Review, The Arts (Chicago Tribune), The Beloit Fiction Journal, The Carleton Miscellany, The Courier-Journal (New Haven), Crosscurrents, The Edge City Review (where a story won second prize in the Millennium Fiction Contest in 2002), Kansas Quarterly, The Newsday Magazine, Syracuse New Times, Northwest Magazine (The Sunday Oregonian), Picture (Minneapolis Tribune), Ploughshares, Syracuse Guide, Voices in Italian Americana, and This World (San Francisco Chronicle). Many of the stories are scheduled to appear or have appeared on-line in such ezines as Per Contra and Nights and Weekends.

Turco's stories have been anthologized in American Fiction 2, edited by Michael C. White and Alan Davis for Birch Lane Press; Two Worlds Walking, edited by Diane Glancy and C. W. Truesdale for New Rivers Press, and in Heroes and Villains, edited by Henry I. Christ for AMSCO School Publications. "Vincent" was included in the first P. E. N. / N. E. A. Syndicated Fiction Project, anthologized in The Available Press / P. E. N. Short Story Collection by Ballantine Books and included in the National Public Radio series The Sound of Writing, sponsored by the P. E. N. American Center and the National Endowment for the Arts, broadcast nationally on various National Public Radio stations beginning in 1987.

Although The Museum of Ordinary People is Lewis Turco's first collection of short fiction, he wrote The Book of Dialogue, considered by many to be the definitive book on writing dialogue in fiction; it has gone through several domestic and foreign editions including one translated into Italian and another that makes up a tripartite U. K. volume (with Ansen Dibell and Orson Scott Card) titled How to Write a Mi££ion,.
