The Near Future

Joe Ashby Porter (Author)
Available

Description

""The Near Future" is a little jewel of a book, a very funny novel about getting--among other things--old, and in Florida, and with less than one's entire dignity in tact. Porter's comic imagination is of the truly droll sort, and with it he homes very closely in upon the truth--alas."--Richard Ford

Winner of the Academy Award (2004) from The American Academy of Arts and Letters, Joe Ashby Porter, a Shakespeare scholar at Duke University, is the author of three short story collections and two novels.
