      eBook: A Simplified Map of the Real World

      “Death and high jinks, love and rage—the ordinary doings of a small town are not so simple. Stevan Allred has clear vision and he’s a loving and joyful teller of tales. In his hands, these voices are angry, foolish, wise, heartbroken, and true.”

      – Joanna Rose, author of Little Miss Strange

      Get three eBook formats for the price of one. Fifteen linked stories chart a true course through the lives of families, farmers, loggers, former classmates, and the occasional stripper. In the richly imagined town of Renata, Oregon, a man watches his neighbor's big-screen TV through binoculars. An errant son paints himself silver. Mysterious electrical humming emanates from an enormous barn. In A Simplified Map of the Real World, intimate boundaries are loosened by divorce and death in a rural community where even an old pickle crock has an unsettling history--and high above the strife and the hope and the often hilarious, geese seek the perfect tailwind. Stevan Allred's stunning debut deftly navigates the stubborn geography of the human heart. 

      Stevan Allred's debut linked short story collection, A Simplified Map of the Real World, is Forest Avenue Press' first fiction title. 

      "I don't know how he works his magic--probably naked at the typewriter or some other trick to get so much humanity and humility on the page--but Stevan has built a world full of beautiful and messy people living beautiful and messy lives." - Yuvi Zalkow, A Brilliant Novel in the Works

      "Stevan Allred's characters are delightfully wrong-headed. They make questionable choices--sometimes terrible ones--and get themselves into all kinds of trouble. But the worse their mistakes, the more I care for them, because beyond their difficulties what Allred gives them is the essential dignity of longing." - Scott Nadelson, The Next Scott Nadelson
