The stories in Big Brown Bag offer not just a world, but worlds. They are a little humorous, a little surreal, sometimes painful, but always hopeful. Here are twelve stories peopled by small boys who can't keep their arms and legs on; old men obsessed with dead celebrities; young men obsessed with themselves; war veterans deeply in love with ghosts; old ladies mildly in love with anonymous waiters; a pregnant woman who unexpectedly finds herself un-pregnant; and, of course, Santa Claus. "A rich, new voice that needs to be heard." - Tod Goldberg, author of Simplify "Big Brown Bag is quick, wry, teetering on the edges of the real and the surreal, comedy and violence, balance and madness. It’s a wonderful debut, and just plain fun to read." - Chuck Rosenthal, author of Heart of Mars "Appallingly good." – Martin Perlich, Arts and Roots Forum "Secretive, clever, and totally fun…a wonderful collection." – “Packed cover to cover with intriguing tales and thrilling characters…an exciting debut.” – Midwest Book Reviews "Haunting, weird, macabre, and bizarre…reminiscent of Poe's The Pit and the Pendulum and The Tell-Tale Heart.” – Rebecca’s Reads “Throughout Big Brown Bag, D’Anna encapsulates human nature with longing, dark humor with hope, love with destruction, and solitude with fantasy. His compelling stories demand the attention of his audience. D’Anna’s talent belongs on bookshelves.” – Northeast Book Reviews
