L. E. Leone
The latest collection of short stories by L.E. Leone is due from Sparkle Street Books in November. Big Bend includes stories previously published in The Paris Review, and anthologized in Best American Mystery Stories 2001, and New Stories from the South. The title story, "Big Bend," won the Malahat Review's novella contest in 2002.
L.E. Leone published two previous books: a collection of short stories called The Meaning of Lunch (Mammoth Books), and a nonfiction collection called Eat This, San Francisco (Sasquatch). Leone lives in the coastal redwoods north of San Francisco, and for the past 14 years has written a popular weekly column for the San Francisco Bay Guardian. Also a singer-songwriter, she has toured the U.S. at least once a year since 1990, performing musically. And she did reading tours on both coasts for each of her previous books.
Advance copies now available.
