From the author of the novels Love on the Killing Floor and Dragging the River, Trevor Clark’s new collection of stories covers broad territory, from an addict’s confessions to the corruption of academia, in such diverse locales as Jamaica and the UK. The subtle nuances of knifings, the unforeseen rise of Islamic terrorists, the familial kidnapping and the marriage of convenience that takes a wrong turn—Escape and Other Stories is a rough and tumble collection of tales that not only crosses genres, but oceans as well, drawing the reader into worlds of majestic dilapidation not often seen, but which all of us endure.
Among other things, Trevor Clark has worked as an oilrig roughneck, editor, portrait photographer, bookstore manager, and home entertainment coordinator for a TV movie production company in London, where he lived for a number of years. He is the author of fiction, including Dragging the River, Love on the Killing Floor and Escape and other Stories, and his photographs have appeared in Designs of Darkness: Interviews With Detective Novelists, (Bowling Green University Popular Press,) and Interviews With Contemporary Novelists (Macmillan/ St. Martin’s Press,) both by Diana Cooper-Clark, as well as Ross Macdonald: A Biography, by Tom Nolan, (Scribner’s,) NOW, and the Globe And Mail. He currently resides in Vancouver.
