Reading Like a Writer: A Guide for People Who Love Books and for Those Who Want to Write Them (P.S.)
Francine Prose

Prose
Elizabeth Bishop

Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2011

Elizabeth Bishop’s prose is not nearly as well known as her poetry, but she was a dazzling and compelling prose writer too, as the publication of her letters has shown.

This volume—edited by the poet, Pulitzer Prize–winning critic, and Bishop scholar Lloyd ...
  
  











  



  
Superheroes in Prose Volume 9: 8-Bit Hero, 2014

A ragged, vacant breath escapes Rock’s mouth. The hospital bed—even reinforced for his stony one-ton body—creaks with every exhale. They’re deep and quick, like wind rushing from a cave. Specially designed tubes rest in the slits he has for a nose, feeding him … keeping at least his body alive. Wires hang from machines and chirp heartbeats. Rock’s three-fingered hands, each one the size of a basketball, rest outside the fuzzy ...
  
  











  



  
Lovers at the Chameleon Club, Paris 1932: A Novel
Francine Prose

Harper, 2014

A richly imagined and stunningly inventive literary masterpiece of love, art, and betrayal, exploring the genesis of evil, the unforeseen consequences of love, and the ultimate unreliability of storytelling itself. Paris in the 1920s shimmers with excitement, dissipation, and freedom. It is a place of intoxicating ambition, passion, art, and discontent, where louche jazz venues like the Chameleon Club draw expats, artists, libertines, and ...

Superheroes in Prose Volume Five: Magick with a k, 2013

Snow is so freaking cool. And I’m not talking about the Superhero named Snow (but he’s actually pretty cool too). No, I’m talking about snow-snow. Like the stuff people sing about at Christmas. Like the stuff Mom used to make snow cream out of. Like the stuff whitening everything in the city of Prose. It snowed four inches last night—unusual for Prose even in winter. And downright impossible in March … yet here it is: Clumps ...
