Earthquake Weather

ebook

The "Classic Catherine" Anniversary Edition of EARTHQUAKE WEATHER AND OTHER

STORIES is now available for sale! Check out the new Author's Note by

Catherine Ryan Hyde.

"Earthquake Weather is a strong, finely-wrought collection from Catherine

Ryan Hyde. The characters are well-drawn without falling into western

stereotypes; the dialogue is right on target." —San Jose Mercury News

All of the stories in EARTHQUAKE WEATHER have been published in literary

magazines, and many have been nominated for Best American Short Stories,

the O'Henry Award and the Pushcart Prize.

In "Dante," a woman inherits a dangerous dog from her late married lover,

Grant. Dante is not dangerous to her, just to anyone who tries to get near

her. Now the question is whether that's what Grant had intended all along.

In "Mrs. Mulvaney, the Grasshopper God," an older woman has a spiritual

experience that causes her to swear off the mowing of her lawn. But it

drives her neighbor Mr. Felker—who found her lawn a touch unkempt to begin

with—right over the edge.

In "Red Texas Sky," Charley, a young boy who's been plagued by nightmares

since witnessing the death of his father, gets help from an unexpected

source. His mother brings home a new boyfriend, Teddy, an alcoholic Vietnam

vet who takes Charley on a mission to face his fears in hopes of leaving

the nightmares behind.

"Of the eighteen stories collected here... all are worth reading. Empathy

is everywhere in this book.... And perhaps that's what's so striking about

this collection: in your heart, you can see yourself in most every

character. Sometimes that's frightening, and sometimes it's kind of nice.

Either way it's a good read."

—San Luis Obispo Telegram-Tribune

"Earthquake Weather is a kaleidoscopic treasure... there are so many

emotions in these stories, such depth to the feelings...Her writing brings

us into the lives of such varied people... and she makes us understand and

even care for them as only a talented wordsmith could."

—New Times
