                       Eric Kraft: A Bibliography


      Little Follies:  The Personal History, Adventures, Experiences and Observations of
      Peter Leroy (So Far)     RC 36556
      Grown-up Peter Leroy embellishes upon events of his childhood in a small long Island
      clamming community.  A highly imaginative, naive, perfectionist, young Peter struggles
      to comprehend the unusual relatives, neighbors, teachers, and children in his life.
      Originally published as an eight-part serial novel.  1982.

      Herb 'n' Lorna:  A Love Story     RC 29834
      When Peter Leroy is bequeathed a small box containing meticulously crafted, animated,
      erotic jewelry, he begins a journey through his grandparents' lifelong romance.  Brought
      together through their artistic ability, Herb and Lorna seemed to have had a normal
      married life.  But, in the end, what appeared on the surface to be an ordinary life was
      one full of constant surprises.  Some descriptions of sex.  1988.

      Where Do You Stop?  The Personal History, Adventures, Experiences and
      Observations of Peter Leroy (Continued)     RC 36897
      Peter Leroy's sixth-grade year centers around a fascinating but never-ending science
      paper.  But he still has time to build a lighthouse, lust after older women, and bug his
      grandfather (who is sharecropping a miniature wheat field in Peter's yard) to submit his
      inventions to a television show.  1992.

      What a Piece of Work I Am:  A Confabulation     RC 41170
      Peter Leroy tells the story of the imaginary sister of his imaginary childhood friend.
      Ariane helps Peter's grandfather with his dying wife and tries to understand the couple's
      devotion.  Later, Ariane turns herself into a performance piece for paying audiences and
      eventually for herself.  Some descriptions of sex and some strong language.  1994.

      At Home with the Glynns:  The Personal History, Adventures, Experiences and
      Observations of Peter Leroy (Continued)     RC 42994
      Peter Leroy, almost twelve, is captivated by the twin daughters of the neighboring
      Glynns, but his first task is to gain the confidence of their bohemian parents, an artists
      and a poet.  Peter's involvement in art heightens both his aesthetic and sexual
      awareness.  Descriptions of sex.  1995
             Leaving Small's Hotel     RC 48458
      Peter Leroy and his wife Albertine's ownership of Small's Hotel is in jeopardy.  Their
      latest scheme to save the inn involves nightly readings from Peter's memoirs for their
      guests.  Soon the listeners begin finding ways they can fit into the plan.  Some strong
      language.  1998.

      Eric Kraft maintains a web site where he sells his work in print, e-book, CD, and MP3
      formats:  <http://www.erickraft.com/peterleroy/pershist/sitecontstopical.html>.

      There is a large amount of material available online for free, including essays about the
      series, and a page on which Kraft answers questions from readers.  Sample chapters
      from several novels are also available, in some cases the first half of the book.  Kraft is
      in the process of making commercial recordings of his work and intends to add free
      MP3 samples to the site as each title is completed.
