"The Death of Bonnie and Clyde" and Other Stories

Michael Gills

“The Death of Bonnie and Clyde” and Other Stories follows the trail of its wayward characters down the Delta back roads, crossing paths with Hernando DeSoto--hands bloodied by the indian slaughters--hitchhikers and thieves, UFO’s, concrete finishers, naked fishermen, a lusty cheer squad caught and confessing in the midst of a killer tornado, and trash telescope salesmen on the day after Christmas–all saintly guardians of the human heart. From the Florida Coast up through the Carolinas and over to Arkansas’ Ozarks, Bonnie and Clyde blazes a trail of love and deceit, hard liquor and the revelation of what it’s like tp be free and wild and in love on this earth.

MICHAEL GILLS grew up in Arkansas.  His first collection of stories, Why I Lie, was chosen as a top literary debut of 2002, and was a finalist for Arkansas’ Porter Prize.  His first novel, Go Love, is forthcoming from Raw Dog Screaming Press.  Gills is currently Associate Professor/Lecturer of Writing at the University of Utah.
