With raw, poetic ferocity, Kimberly King Parsons exposes desire's darkest hollows--those hidden places where most of us are afraid to look. In this debut collection of enormously perceptive and brutally unsentimental short stories, Parsons illuminates the ache of first love, the banality of self-loathing, the scourge of addiction, the myth of marriage, and the magic and inevitable disillusionment of childhood. Taking us from hot Texas highways to cold family kitchens, from the freedom of pay-by-the-hour motels to the claustrophobia of private school dorms, these stories erupt off the page with a primal howl--sharp-voiced, bitter, and wise. Black Light contains the type of storytelling that resonates somewhere deep, in the well of memory that repudiates nostalgia.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Kimberly King ParsonsPublisher: VintagePublished: 08/13/2019ISBN: 9780525563501Pages: 224Weight: 0.45lbsSize: 7.90h x 5.10w x 0.80dReview Citations: Publishers Weekly 06/10/2019Kirkus Reviews 11/01/2019
