ISBN: 0393072568

ID: 5699328

A bold, dazzling debut collection about girls and women in a world where sexuality and self-delusion collide. In these stories, a teacher obsesses over a student who comes to class with scratch marks on his face; a Catholic girl graduating high school finds a warped kind of redemption in her school's contrived class rituals; and a woman looking to rent a house is sucked into a strangely inappropriate correspondence with one of the landlords. These are just a few of the powerful plotlines in Suzanne Rivecca's gorgeously wrought collection. From a college student who adopts a false hippie persona to find love, to a young memoirist who bumps up against a sexually obsessed fan, the characters in these fiercely original tales grapple with what it means to be honest with themselves and the world. These stories explode "with piercing insight . . . illuminating the dangerous dance between victims and saviors. [They] deliver us to the edge of grief, that precarious place where the moral compass spins?where codes of love and law and religion fail. Mercy here depends on a tiger's sublime grace, our capacity to resist deeper harm, and the right of every broken being to remain silent" (Melanie Rae Thon). anthologies,contemporary women,literature and fiction,short stories,women's fiction Literature & Fiction, W.

[EAN: 9780393072563], Neubuch, [PU: 05.07.2010], Brand New. Perfect ConditionISBN13: 9780393072563Author: Suzanne RiveccaA teacher obsesses over a student who comes to class with scratch marks on his face; a Catholic girl graduating from high school finds a warped kind of redemption in her school's contrived class rituals; a woman looking to rent a house is sucked into a strangely inappropriate correspondence with her landlord-these are just a few of the powerful plotlines in Suzanne Rivecca's gorgeously wrought debut collection. From a college student who adopts a false hippie persona to find love to a young memoirist who bumps up against a sexually obsessed fan, the characters in these fiercely original tales grapple with what it means to be honest with themselves and the world. As provocative as Mary Gaitskill's Bad Behavior, the exuberant prose of Death Is Not an Option explodes 'with piercing insight . . . illuminating the dangerous dance between victims and saviors' (Melanie Rae Thon).
