Présentation de l'éditeur

MTV has discovered the authors of tomorrow. Read them today in Pieces.
This unique short-story collection is more than a good read -- it's an exciting glimpse into the future of fiction. The winners of MTV's "Write Stuff" competition share their voices and visions in tales that are endearingly raw, undeniably bold, and engagingly inventive.
In Next Time, a housewife encounters a gunman -- an experience that changes her life, and her mind, in surprising ways...Pinball is an edgy tale of a young mail clerk's hidden sex life...After her broken engagement, a cook in New York goes to work for a chic SoHo couple in Roam...Mother captures the tragedy of a woman's illness, as witnessed through her daughter's eyes...In Day of the Dead, a humorously doomed relationship begins when a twentysomething's boyfriend returns from an Outward Bound trip and moves in with her...Two old high school friends reunite -- and compare their very different lives -- in Black Cowboy.
Along with other stories and an introduction by Stephen Chbosky (The Perks of Being a Wallflower), Pieces is filled with the excitement of discovery -- as a host of newcomers present their works to a wide and eager audience.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 an amazing collection of stories 9 août 2001
Par Stephen S. Mills - Publié sur
This collection of short stories left me wanting more from many of the authors included, many of which are working on novels. I was first led to this book by the editer, Stephen Chbosky, whose novel, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, as become a personal favorite, one I've already read twice.
The stories included are all refreshing and range greatly in style and subject matter. I was amazed by so many of them and was stunned by the authors interesting, hip and refreshing take on telling a story. I don't normally read short stories, but I really liked reading them because so many of them are very short, 10 pages or less and you can read them quickly and be done with those characters. Also if there is one you don't care much for it's not very long and you can move on to another more interesting story.
Some of my favorite stories were, "Polariod," which gets you into the mind of crowd all standing around the Eiffel Tower. The way the story is told is awesome and leaves you satisfied. "The Carnival" was another favorite, it's amazing use of metaphor will leave you breathless.
I recommend this book to anyone interested in finding new, fresh, authors who aren't afraid of shocking you.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Pieces 7 décembre 2003
Par Laura - Publié sur
Pieces isnt a bad book at all! I had some low expectations for it due to some of the other reviews, but all in all I was pleasantly surprised with most parts of the book. It isnt very reminiscient of "Perks of Being a Wallflower" if you're expecting that.
Overall, I give it a B, some of the stories were horrible (Mother, White Carousel Horse) and then, some were marvelous,(Roam, Forbidden Fate). Others were mediocre.
Dont listen to the people saying this book is "too much to take" because I am 16 and a high school junior. I found it to be a good read that kept me interested and entertained.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Shockingly believable 14 août 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur
The thing that I most enjoyed about this book was that I could actually relate to the stories. Stephen is not only a wonderful writer, but a spectacular editor as well. He did a great job bringing this book together and making it into what it is today.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Inspired writing-- 27 août 2000
Par Kenny Lee - Publié sur
Kudos to the editors and publishers of this wonderful collection for giving young writers a forum to "break in." I plan to use several of these stories in my tenth and eleventh grade American literature classes. They are as good as many of the "classic" stories I've come across in Best Of anthologies, the New Yorker, Esquire, etc... And they will show the aspiring writers in my classes that pursuing writing professionally is feasible with a little talent and a lot of persistence. William Clifford's "Scoring", Michelle Rick's "Next Time" and Dennis Dillingham's "The White Horse Carousel" are particularly inspiring, and even show flashes of brilliance. I look forward to seeing more from them.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Worth Picking Up! 8 septembre 2004
Par Blanchard - Publié sur
This book is totally enjoyable. MTV Books did a great thing by having the 'Write Stuff' Competition, or else we wouldn't have had access to this collection. It contains 15 short stories by young, talented authors from all over the U.S. I never thought much about short stories (usually reading novels), until I picked up this book. I love the story "Polaroid," about people in Paris on a rainy day. All of these stories have something in common. They all tell that what the eye sees is not always the truth. That behind every person there is a truth, known only to themselves. It might be good, or bad. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to read something different, capturing, and fresh. A good buy. Along with Pieces, I recommend The Losers Club by Richard Perez and WILL@epicqwest by Tom Grimes -- two very cool Amazon quick-picks I'm very happy with.
