The Beach Week by Pierce Koslosky Jr.
Genre: Short Stories
216 pages, paperback
Publication Date: June 2, 2018
Thousands and thousands of families and individuals are attracted to the South Carolina coast each year, renting houses up and down the beach every summer. In The Beach Week, author Pierce Koslosky Jr. has crafted fourteen poignant short stories that paint a vivid portrait of the beach’s diverse, temporary inhabitants; those people attracted to a landscape both beautiful and overwhelming in its ability to force introspection and change.
Set over the course of a single rental season that ends at Christmas, the book’s unrelated characters are united by a cohesive theme.
Both original and contemplative, heartbreaking and inspirational, The Beach Week is a collection of fine literary fiction reminiscent of Raymond Carver and John Cheever, two of the great short story writers of our time. Brought together, these stories feature seemingly ordinary, simple, and familiar details, yet underneath the calm, relatable surface, there exists an homage to the uncomfortable, extraordinary complexities of life.
