Beef Timeless Fun … and Other Stories (Wendell Ricketts)

Grass Texture
In this collection of short fiction by the editor of Everything I Have Is Blue: Short Fiction by Working-Class Men About More-or-Less Gay Life, Wendell Ricketts delves deeply into the intersections of class, sexuality, violence, and the meaning of “community. His eye is acute and his ear for dialogue is unerring. Readers may find these stories biting, funny,  sexy, touching, even disturbing, but they will not quickly forget them. Ricketts’ work has appeared in Jonathan, Blue Mesa Review, The Long Story, The Harrington Gay Men’s Fiction Quarterly, modern words, Blithe House Quarterly, The James White Review, and The Mississippi Review, among others.
