I Hear the Human Noise by Ray Morrison
"The twin subjects of love and death run through Ray Morrison’s book like a freight train rumbling slowly late at night across a countryside overcome with sadness and loss. I Hear the Human Noise is a masterful collection of short stories, and Morrison is proof that, even in these narcissistic, technologically driven times we’re living in, there are still people out there who care deeply about what it means to just be human."
—Donald Ray Pollock, author of The Devil All the Time and The Heavenly Table
A collection of seventeen short stories.
Ray Morrison spent most of his childhood in Brooklyn, NY, and Washington, DC, but headed south after college to earn his degree in veterinary medicine and he hasn’t looked north since. He has happily settled in Winston-Salem with his wife and three children where, when he is not writing short stories, he ministers to the needs of dogs, cats and rodents. His debut collection of short stories, In a World of Small Truths (Press 53), was released in November, 2012. His fiction has appeared in numerous journals, including Ecotone, Carve Magazine, Fiction Southeast, and storySouth.
