Late Breaking (eBook)
de K.D. Miller
Sobre o livro
Inspired by the work of Alex Colville, the linked stories in K.D. MillersLate Breaking form a suite of portraits that evoke the paintings loom-ing atmospheres and uncanny stillness while trav-eling deeply into their subjects vividly imagined lives. roughout, the collection bears witness to the vulnerability of the elder heart, revealing that love, sex, and heartbreak are not only the domain of the young, and deftly rendering the con icts that divide us and the ties that bind.
Husbands and wives struggle to commu-nicate, romantic relationships are and falter, parents and children navigate their complicated feelings, older women struggle with diminish-ing status in a youth-obsessed culture, while the threat of violence haunts young women and girls. Yet as the stories intersect and the charac-ters lives are increasingly entwined, fear, guilt, estrangement, and the fact of death are met by courage, redemption and the fragile beauty of love, in all its myriad guises.
Brilliantly observed, both tender and tor-tured, and in no way afraid of the dark, these stories conÿ rm K.D. Miller as one of our best and bravest writers.
