More of This World or Maybe Another Summary


More of This World or Maybe Another by Barb Johnson

More of This World or Maybe Another is a collection of award-winning short fiction about four outsiders whose unruly lives intersect on the back streets of New Orleans from writer Barb Johnson. Funny and haunting by turns, Johnson's unforgettable characters are driven by something fragile and irresistible, a sputtering drive to love and be loved, in these "stunning stories . . . the kind that reveal, enlarge, and make living seem worth the trouble." (Dorothy Allison)

More of This World or Maybe Another Reviews


"In this wickedly fine debut, Barb Johnson proves herself a master of the short story. Both the familiar and the extraordinary come to life on every page, and her characters will haunt you for a very long time."--Joseph Boyden, author of Through Black Spruce, winner of Canada's 2008 Giller Prize
"This debut is elemental, precise, and charged with ragged, intimate grace. As the collection's heroine Delia says to her lover, I would say to all readers: 'Come see.'"--David Schickler, author of Kissing in Manhattan
