Paul Scott Malone's first volume of stories, In an Arid Land, won the Texas Institute of Letters Award for the best book of fiction for 1995. His second book of stories raises his award-winning standard. Memorial Day and Other Stories has a cast of characters not easily forgotten; they are damaged young men struggling with a hostile world -- or at least a world they don't always understand. Malone's major theme is the angst of modern man. Even the women characters -- and they are never the protagonists -- suffer from one sort of anxiety or another.In the title story, William, the narrator, drifts between madness and distress and despair. In "Family Photos", Randy, the main character, is on leave from an institution for the troubled to visit his family. The more they try to draw him out, the more he retreats into his near-madness. And in the novelette that ends the volume, Dalrymple is not a disturbed person but a young man desperately seeking himself as he prepares to be drafted for service in the Vietnam War. His anxiety comes from his broken marriage, his fear of going to war, and his inability to make himself grow up. In "The Solitary Heart", one of the few stories with a major woman character, we see a pair of artists -- man and wife? -- who carve out lives together yet really live alone. They work and eat together, but at night each goes to a solitary bed.Malone does not write happy stories, but his work probes the depths of human emotion and opens for readers windows into the minds of people in more distress than they are. Or so we hope.
Paul Scott Malone has published stories in many of the leading fiction journals and anthologies. Malone earned the MFA from the University of Arizona and now writes full time. A former Texan, he lives in Urbana, Illinois.
