Read full description of the books Mourning Wood: The Preposthumously Early Work of Mike Wood:From the author of “Alchemy” comes this collection of short stories: Tupac Shakur had THREE “Number One” albums come out after his death. John Kennedy Toole won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction for a book published eleven YEARS after he died. And Vincent Van Gogh didn’t live to see a single cent of the MILLIONS his art eventually commanded (but at least he never had to hear that horrible song Don Mclean sang about him!) Granted, even dead, all of the above still have more talent than Mike Wood, but that’s not stopping him from publishing his posthumous stuff now, while he’s still alive to reap the rewards. Inside you will find short stories ranging from childhood antics to teenage high-jinks all the way to adult tragedy. Not to mention the saga of a very angry dwarf! So if you enjoy serious fiction…this is probably not the book for you (so put it down and let someone else buy it! Someone who doesn’t need to sport a Vonnegut or Cheever just to feel good about themselves.) But if you like to laugh, and cry, and sometimes cringe at the written word, chances are you’ll get a rise out of “Mourning Wood.
Read information about the authorMike Wood is a middle school teacher by day, husband/father by night, and author by accident. His first novel, Alchemy, was mostly written while recovering from a torn Achilles tendon (which is a cool injury when it happens on a football field, but not so cool when it occurs while dancing at an outdoor concert!) That injury, and a somewhat serendipitous meeting with best-selling author AJ Jacobs, inspired him to start pursuing his secret dream of being a writer. After many rejections from agents and publishers, he finally found someone foolish enough to publish his books…himself!
