newest collection of short stories, Forgive Me, Father. His
work has appeared in several literary magazines throughout the years earning
nominations for the Pushcart Prize as well as winning a national award from
Scratch Writer magazine. Two prior novels, Belonging (2006) and
What You Wish For (2011) were equally well received. This current
collection further highlights Mr. Pieper's ability as a keen wordsmith, taking
the reader beyond the pages of the book into the world he creates within its
covers. These twelve, succinct stories allow a fine glimpse into the
delightful and playful mind that is Bill Pieper. You will not want to put
the book down.
In Bill Pieper’s Forgive Me, Father, the characters must reckon with
the lives they’ve fashioned. The focus is on small choices, and on moments of
consequence and regret that offer an empathetic view of how ordinary trouble can
escalate into rippling damage for the characters themselves and their loved
author, Garbage Night at the Opera
Eudora Welty, who would know, said that “all writers
speak from, and speak to, emotions eternally the same in all of us: love, pity,
terror do not show favorites or leave any of us out.” These stories bear that
out. Themes ordinary and familiar, and thus relevant, are made revelatory,
extraordinary and compelling by a practiced writer who gets us quickly to the
inventive tale, and the edge where we stop short or go over.
