Red Car

RedCar large 300 Red Car

Forty-year vet­eran of the novel, noted fem­i­nist, and author of over ten books, Sallie Bingham returns with Red Car, a col­lec­tion writ­ten in her sig­na­ture style-discreet, sly prose cir­cling taboo sub­jects. Her new offer­ing is about love enjoyed, whether alone or with lovers, sen­sual or famil­ial, comedic or tragic, often with a wry twist.

In these twelve sto­ries, Bingham trav­els from the beaches of Normandy shortly after the sec­ond World War, to modern-day Brittany, Santa Fe, Florida, and Southern Colorado to sit­u­ate her wide range of char­ac­ters. Her pro­tag­o­nists blun­der through rela­tion­ships, no mat­ter where they hap­pen to live. But some­how we know they’ll sur­vive and be wiser for it. Bingham’s new col­lec­tion, with its honed aes­thetic of sub­tlety and hon­esty is an adven­tur­ous read.


“Restrained and wise, these lovely sto­ries unfold like lavender-scented linens, qui­et­ing the fret­ful mind.“
— Joe Ashby Porter

“Bingham has been writ­ing fic­tion for decades, and her newest short sto­ries evince the tangy fruits of her labors in their grace­ful bal­ance, refined com­po­si­tion, telling details, and the pro­bity of their emo­tions. Polished and sexy.“
