    Some of Arvin s work is as direct as Hemingway with the sensitivity of O Connor or Shields, and yet others nuanced as if Maupin wrote a letter to Penthouse Thom Fitzgerald, director THE HANGING GARDENEric Arvin resides in the same sleepy Indiana river town where he grew up He graduated from Hanover College with a Bachelors in History He has lived, for brief periods, in Italy and Australia He has survived brain surgery and his own loud mouthed personal demons Eric is the author of WOKE UP IN A STRANGE PLACE, THE MINGLED DESTINIES OF CROCODILES MEN, SUBSURDITY, SIMPLE MEN, and various other sundry and not so sundry writings He intends to live the rest of his days with tongue in cheek and eyes set to roam.


    This book is brilliant, not a single misstep in the entire anthology. There's generous dose of humor with a dash of spiritual enlightenment. Arvin again manages to blow me away with his mastery of language and the magnificent turns of phrase that make this book one of the best I've ever read. Arvin has a true talent for creating unique and wholly lovable characters. This is one collection that you don't want to miss. I gulped it down in one day and I know it's a book that I will reread many time [...]

I actually like Eric Arvin's style of writing very much, particularly his comed [...]

    Maybe I'm late, but I discover a new author, for me at least, that I for sure will add to my must-read author. Eric Arvin. Slight Details & Random Events is a collection of short stories, but, even if usually I'm not very fond of anthology of short stories, this time I like it very much cause most of the stories are intertwined and so we have the chance to read almost a full novel inside the anthology.Prometheus: this is a fairy tale, very short. A man finds a very handsome and sculptured ma [...]

    There is nothing quite like sinking into an Eric Arvin book. From the first page you are delighted by the amazing place that is the imagination of this man. Each story is filled with magic and love; some with familiar characters and some with new friends and yet each leaves you feeling happy and satisfied and desperate for more tales.
