Honeymoon and other stories
Nan A. Talese/Doubleday, 2001/04/17 - 161 ページ
Kevin Canty is a master of the short story, a writer whose work has been compared to that of Flannery O'Connor and Raymond Carver, but always with the understanding that Canty's is strikingly new, cool, and real. Now inHoneymoon,after two novels, Kevin Canty returns to short fiction, his first collection since his debutA Stranger in this World,a book that was hailed as "Superb: These tautly structured stories breathe with sharp, distilled intelligence." Honeymoonis a book about love, about lovers and would-be lovers exploring unlikely alliances, all of them toeing a certain eventful edge, a decision between rational restraint and something altogether different. In the title story, a man leaves his lover's wedding with the bride's ex-girlfriend; in "Flipper" a young escapee from "fat camp" discovers a different kind of hunger while enjoying a pregnant teen's gifts of forbidden chocolate; in "Aquarium," a thirty-eight-year old woman who claims to "follow the straight and narrow" tries to resist seducing her fifteen-year-old nephew again. Revealing the hidden longings and quirky needs of both men and women with a tough sensitivity and deep, sometimes biting humor,Honeymoonpresents a masterful writer purely at home in his form, yet continuing to push himself and his stories to their limits with enthusiasm and daring.
