Peter Bellis' One Last Dance With Lawrence Welk And Other Stories is a surreal world of characters in stories where anything can happen. A young boy from Minnesota brings two ghosts together through music, a wealthy gadabout recalls the night of his death, an ancient miracle man travels the country roads of Florida in search of customers for his Blue Elixir of The Nile. Bellis is gifted storyteller with a mastery of the short story format and and a knack for engaging the reader's "sense of wonder". -- Midwest Book Review

"Peter Damian Bellis has an original and compelling style!" - Joyce Carol Oates

"A real display of virtuosity - Peter Damian Bellis' stories sail across landscapes armed with mythic charms, finely tuned details, and enough grittiness to take the paint off your car. Peter Damian Bellis is a genius of the unexpected."
-Jonis Agee, author of Sweet Eyes
(A NY Times Notable Books of the Year)

"I love the stories of Flannery O'Connor and Joyce carol Oates. And Gabriel Garcia Marquez, of course. Peter Damian Bellis is also a writer who has had a great influence on me."
-Luana Monteiro, critically acclaimed
author of Litte Star of Bella Luna
(Delphinium Books/HarperCollins Publishers) ( )
