Advance copies of South Philly Fiction now available at these select stores!

Funny, shocking, true-to-life, even a little magical, these varied and revealing stories use Philadelphia’s iconic neighborhood as their literary inspiration. South Philly Fiction presents a complex and diverse world that defies common stereotypes. A negligent father bringing the gift of cold french fries, the robbery of a Palestinian street vendor, a young woman remembering teenage love in her embattled homeland, a lost dog surviving while a marriage doesn’t, Olive Garden arguments, snow fights between sidewalk shovelers, priests, loan sharks, backyard bomb shelters, and love on the Orange line. Bound together by the simple map of a city, the characters that live within South Philly Fiction will capture your imagination no matter where you live.

Stories by: Susan Muaddi-Darraj, Tom Larsen, Beth Goldner, Xavier Richardson, Octavia McBride-Ahebee, Susan Barr-Toman, Sarah Kowalski, Julia Curcio, Chris McCreary, Timothy Sweeney, George Arthur Davis, John DiFelice, Francesca Lo Basso, Leslie Rapparlie, Augustus Cileone, Elizabeth Corcoran, Nate House, Jaime Fountaine.
