Daniel Grandbois' Lucky Unlucky Lucky Days

Daniel Grandbois' writing has appeared in Conjunctions, Fiction, Boulevard, Sentence, Del Sol Review, and the anthologies Freak Lightning and Online Writing: The Best of the First Ten Years. An accomplished musician, he has played in several Denver-based bands. This month his first book, Unlucky Lucky Days hits bookstores. It's an intriguing, nicely-packaged fiction collection divided into a week's worth of 73 short-shorts. Some of these stories are funny, others unsettling. One of my favorite writers, Brian Evenson, has said of Unlucky Lucky Days, "Grandbois is the master of the double-edged word, of stories that both cut through the world like butter and double-back to saw themselves to bits." I recently interviewed Grandbois about fiction, music, and Buckwaldo Mudthumper. Included after the interview is an exclusive excerpt from the book.

"The Singing", "The termit Queen"," The fish", The Chair", " Broccoli" "Newspaper" ... imaginative, creative writing.

I discovered an imaginery, inventive, fantastic, surrealist world. Daniel Grandbois capture the essence of the world and create an universe, another world with baffles. Great Alchemy!

"Unlucky, Lucky Days" - Highly recommended!
