Clive Sinclair Death and Texas
Chair: Cathy Galvin
The stories in Clive Sinclair’s fourth collection range from New Orleans and Texas to Peru and Venice, and their cast includes Davy Crockett, Princess Diana and Shylock. Dealing mostly with loss, the fear of loss, and love – especially that between husbands and wives and fathers and sons – they are as cruel as life, and as funny.
