Good plan Captain.

Some really sterling examples of the kind of stuff I think you are after.

A little more difficult but full of tension and a great read

http://www.newyorker.com/archive/1948/05/15/1948_05_15_031_TNY_CARDS_000214135

The three books are well worth the money and the New Yorker story is free online.

They will not teach you how to write and you will never be able to effectively copy their styles but each, in its own way, will show you how it is possible to load tension and violence into a story with grace and elegance.

Good luck.

FREE TODAY http://www.amazon.com/dp/B006O2P13O
“MY TEMPORARY LIFE” HAS OVER 60-FIVE STAR REVIEWS JUST LIKE THIS ONE:
“There have been and are many novels written about coming of age, but My Temporary Life is the best I have read.
The plot sees Malcom's life divided into two sections - his childhood in Scotland with his dour father and his other life in Canada with his flake mother. How Malcome reconciles these vastly different lifestyles, becomes a mature man in a fight for not only his good reputation and his life, but for that of Heather and her child, is told with compassion and skill.
A very well written and delightful book. I am not surprised that it is a best seller!”

Writers read and buy books. Many indies support other indies. I've read thousands of books and only written three.

Oldtypedog, I'll go and check it out. Read a bit of that Breece Pancake guy. "Trilobites" almost has a "Catcher in the Rye" feel to it.

Yeah, Breece Pancake wrote magnificent short stories. I remember walking back from the mailbox and seeing the cover of the Atlantic, "new story by Breece D'J Pancake, R.I.P." - Oh man I almost cried.

I think you'll like Denis Johnson too, wicked stuff.
