“We're all broken, and the scars we trade are all that remain of our fragile, once complex lives.”

Losing Found Things is the raw, unforgettable debut collection of fifteen short stories from award-winning writer and novelist Brett Garcia Rose, who takes readers past what lies on the surface and into the darkest corners of human experience.

A young man boards a cruise ship planning to jump, and finds an unlikely ally waiting at the railing. A brother and sister slip away from the moving van waiting in their driveway in order to visit their favorite place one last time. Animal rights workers break into a research facility, but the rescue doesnÔÇÖt go as planned. A therapist with her own issues answers suspicious questions about a one night stand. An artist tries to hold onto his fragile, impossibly beautiful model girlfriend as fame pulls her away.

Couples watch the gathering twilights of their love, armed men wait in the woods, lonely people disappear in crowded clubs and city streets. This is the stark world of Brett Garcia Rose, who greets readers with his own autobiographical story ÔÇ£The Spoken World,ÔÇØ which has appeared in multiple anthologies, was nominated for both Best of the Net and The Pushcart Prize, and won the Fiction Attic Short Memoir

I stumbled onto writing by accident. Classes with heavy emphasis on written assignments were easy for me, so long as I did not have to read aloud (I often got the flu and lost my “voice”), yet I did not think about writing until I began to keep a journal; well, really, until someone important to me discovered my journal and read it in secret. She confronted me a hundred pages in, laughing and crying and questioning. She’d never known I had so much to say. Anything, really, to say. She was, and remains, the most beautiful person I have ever met.
We were engaged to be married a few months later. Several months

Я наткнулся на письмо случайно. Занятия с тяжелым акцентом на письменные задания были для меня легкими, поскольку мне не приходилось читать вслух (я часто болел гриппом и терял свой «голос»), но я не думал о письме, пока не начал вести дневник ; ну, действительно, пока кто-то важный для меня не обнаружил мой дневник и не прочитал его в тайне. Она стояла передо мной на сто страниц, смеясь, плача и расспрашивая. Она никогда не знала, что мне так много нужно сказать. Что-нибудь, действительно, чтобы сказать. Она была и остается самым красивым человеком, которого я когда-либо встречал.
Мы были помолвлены через несколько месяцев. Несколько месяцев

The language is unbelievable—heady—took me and pulled me into the drama and intensity of feeling
