The Fourth Corner of the World

Scott Nadelson’s wide-ranging, vividly imagined stories ring with authenticity, humor, and unavoidable heartache. Much like the famous Chekhov story ‘Grief,’ referenced in the collection’s stunning novella ‘A Warm Breath,’ Nadelson’s stories expose emotional lives with… is there such a thing as brutal and lyrical honesty? The Fourth Corner of the World is a collection of gorgeously written, truth-soaked stories.”

–Adrianne Harun, author of A Man Came Through a Door in the Mountain
