Fiction. Michael Hemmingson has been called "Raymond Carver on acid" by literary guru Larry McCaffery and "a disciple of a quick and dirty literature" by the American Book Review. Hemmingson writes from within the everyday man's murky nightmares, offering hints and then, dazzlingly, reneging on his hints.

"PICTURES OF HOUSES WITH WATER DAMAGE gives me confidence that the American short story, as an art form, is hardly dead—indeed, Hemmingson shows us that it's vibrantly alive and kicking smug booty!"—Valerie Grey
