Ice at the Bottom of the World by Mark Richard
Book DescriptionWith a distinctive and original voice, Mark Richard's stories capture characters on the fringe of society, and illuminate the goodness at the heart of their Southern, down-and-out lies. Full of startling images and harrowing epiphanies, The Ice at the Bottom of the World is a collection by a true master of his craft. In these ten stories, Mark Richard, winner of the 1990 PEN/Ernest Hemingway Foundation Award, emerges as the heir apparent to Mark Twain, Flannery O'Connor, and William Faulkner."

Books By Author Mark Richard
Truth and Truth Bearers, Hardback (November 2015)
This book collects nine seminal essays by Mark Richard, alongside four new essays and an introduction. Each essay attempts to understand the idea of a proposition. Richard explores the truth value of objects of thought and assertion; defends a relativist view of those objects; and discusses relations between sentential and propositional structure.
Context and the Attitudes, Paperback (March 2015)
Thirteen seminal essays by Mark Richard develop a nuanced account of semantics and propositional attitudes. The collection addresses a range of topics in philosophical semantics and philosophy of mind, and is accompanied by a new Introduction which discusses attitudes realized by dispositions and other non-linguistic cognitive structures.
When Truth Gives Out, Paperback (May 2010)» View all books by Mark Richard
In this accessible and provocative book Mark Richard argues that the performative and expressive can trump the semantic, making truth the wrong dimension for evaluating a sentence. He explains what it is for truth to be relative, rebuts objections to relativism, assesses objections to expressivism, and gives a novel account of matters of taste.
