Self publishing a book is an exciting undertaking. Because we understand the dedication that is required to write a quality book, we like to feature our top authors each week so that you can get to know a little bit more about them and their book. This week, we are featuring Shelby R. Lee III’s All Points North.
In his latest book, self-publishing Outskirts Press author, Shelby R. Lee III, explores the psychological complexity of human experience in his patently Southern, stream of consciousness style.
Lee’s thirteen short stories dramatically trace the roots of grief, anger, mental torment and sorrow in a succession of unforgettable characters drawn within a tradition of Southern fiction. The unique cast of All Points North is composed of individuals whose personalities may at first seem extreme, but finally reveal certain truths about human nature.
In “Under Veiled Thought” a “chemical hypnotic” treatment sparks two weeks of living hell for an obsessive compulsive patient already living on the edge of his precariously balanced mind. “Boy Freud” follows in the fictional indictment of bizarre psychological therapy as a long time patient is finally able to discover the unorthodox – and illegal – treatments of his therapist.
“The Famous Duck Hunt” shows how a young man’s romantic fascination with the rustic life turns an ordinary hunting trip into an increasingly dark reality. “Typical American Attitudes” reveals the surreal dynamics of a dysfunctional family – but only when their doors are shut to the outside world.
Lee’s fiction gives readers a new voice and a new point of view to a psychological world usually unseen under the synthetic light of social veneer.
