This might be a long shot- might- but, I am a BFA Major in my last semester and I need help finding a certain type of book. I'm looking for Novel's in Vignettes, in that the chapters are Vignettes as opposed to traditional chapters. One good example, and I recommend reading it, is "Water Ghosts" by Shawna Yang Ryan (Which, in case you're wondering, is a lovely novel about a town called "Locke" in California in 1928. Without giving much of the plot away, because I hate it when people do that, it deals with Ghosts, Prostitution, Gambling, Life as an Immigrant, and life as a non immigrant in an immigrant town. Basically a win win, no?)
So, I'm not looking for pop-fiction or genre-fiction really. I am looking for good fiction, if that makes any sense.
I am hoping, hoping, hoping- someone can help with any suggestions. (And, not Vonnegut- I know he writes in a vignette style often, but he also uses chapters and- I've read everything he has in print already.)
