The Sun Also Rises in the Desert

Longueur: 36 pages33 minutes


Professor Jimmy Abbey weighs decorum and desire as he dreams of conquest both with a hotel maid, and Circe -- the conference's hot, young "it" girl. Is Jimmy truly any different than his competing cohorts? Will he ever get his chance to get Circe alone? Or will the emotional baggage of potential infidelity actually be enough to save his "lost" soul? In "The Sun Also Rises in the Desert," Locklin showcases the simple human strengths and weaknesses of characters in a way that is profoundly compassionate.

A legend in the small press and beyond, Gerald Locklin is now a Professor Emeritus of English at California State University, Long Beach, where he taught from 1965 through 2007 and still teaches an occasional class. He is the author of over 150 books, chapbooks, and broadsides of poetry, fiction, and criticism, with over four thousand poems, stories, articles, reviews and interviews in periodicals. His monolithic body of work spans a half century, and Mendicant Bookworks is proud to introduce a brand new reading generation to his work.
