Now available: the paperback edition of Luck Favors The Prepared. Bound with a soft-touch matte cover, this book opens to thick, creamy pages and a font so easy on the eyes, you won't even mind how disturbing these tales can be.
In this first collection of nonfiction short stories, Nathaniel Barber allows a peek inside the life observant. While Luck Favors The Prepared is a straightforward read, the narrative shifts between a remote and comic documentary to lived-in memoir, dreamily recalling the absurd choreography of divorce, landlordship, role playing video games, misguided activism, customer service and sudden and unexpected wardrobe failures.
As a son of the Pacific Northwest, his stories are nestled in the mossy bosom of Washington, Oregon and Northern California. His characters are plucked from the past and set to life. They are belligerents and buffoons. They are the beautiful and the bewildering, plagued by dark and grotesque motives, juxtaposed with loving attention that suspends judgement for a world where no one is defined by their worst deeds.
Luck Favors the Prepared is an unforgettable tour through the ordinary and unconventional. This full collection is lovingly handcrafted by the hardest working nobody in the Pacific Northwest whose thoughtfully added a complementary postcard and matching bookmark with your purchase.
