Beschreibung:

Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: In Honeymoon, his newest collection of taut and moving stories, Kevin Canty again demonstrates why he has been included in the ranks of truly great short story writers, from Flannery O'Connor to Raymond Carver.Here are people who are searching, often in the wrong places, for something meaningful, or real, or, at least for a moment, right. Vincent and Laurie, who after starting an ill-timed relationship, escape for the weekend to a beach, where they confront their inevitable and final separation. Olive, a recovering drug addict, sent on a mission to help her nephew cope with his own addictions, finds herself more than involved in his problems. And a young boy nicknamed Flipper, sequestered for a summer at a "fat" camp, finds unexpected comfort in the company and forbidden gifts of a pregnant teen. Buchnummer des Verkäufers

Inhaltsangabe: 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 in Honeymoon , after two novels, Kevin Canty returns to short fiction, his first collection since his debut A Stranger in this World , a book that was hailed as "Superb: These tautly structured stories breathe with sharp, distilled intelligence."

Honeymoon is 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, Honeymoon presents a masterful writer purely at home in his form, yet continuing to push himself and his stories to their limits with enthusiasm and daring.

Klappentext: * New York Times Book Review

"Canty's forte is to examine human relationships with the precision of a Sue Miller or Louise Erdrich within the context of a fast-moving narrative. Once he's got you in his thrall, you're as helpless as his lovers in the hands of fate."
--Newsday
on Nine Below Zero

"This is first love in all its swift and overwhelming intensity. Both poignant and honest."
--Detroit NewsFree Press on Into the Great Wide Open

"A darkly nuanced, exquisite first collection of stories. Canty navigates the many gulfs and eddies of skewed relationships with unflinching concentration."
--Entertainment Weekly on A Stranger in this World

"Gripping Canty possesses an instinctive ability to create old-fashioned, highly-plotted stories, rich with incident and narrative tension."
--New York Times

"Kevin Canty is a storm of talent His imagination is a dark wood with wildlife in it."
--Harry Crews

"These are lean, powerful stories, which is not to say they are lacking in tenderness. Canty knows how to hurts us the way Flannery O'Connor did."
--Los Angeles Times

"Kevin Canty's stories are direct portrayals of indistinct moments. As with Didion and Carver, the white space is as important as what's filled in. Canty charts a landscape all his own."
--Ann Beattie
