Most Helpful Customer Reviews

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Richard Hebert on December 3, 2011
Format: Paperback
The title novella in this collection of short fiction won first place in its category in the 2011 Royal Palm Literary Awards competition sponsored by the Florida Writers Association.

Here's what Kirkus Reviews, "The World's Toughest Book Critics"(TM), says about the book:

This scintillating collection of a novella and eight short stories uses offbeat character studies to wrestle with snaky issues of identity and self-knowledge. Hébert's loquacious, usually anonymous narrators are obsessed with penetrating the riddle of the people around them.

In "MindWarp," a nameless writer battens for inspiration on Guy, a working-class barfly who is almost elemental in his beaten-down ordinariness. Things get complicated when Guy begins an affair with the feisty, appealing Yolanda; the couple pushes back against the writer's determination to "warp" their reality into a fictional celebration of heroic failure--until the writer himself seems to become the unstable, increasingly desperate creation of his own story.

Quirky, opaque figures abound in other stories; "Ana, Always," about a Yugoslavian youth's efforts to fathom the tragic mystery of a middle-aged woman, is a meditation on family and exile, while "Stephen," the weakest piece, gives us a maudlin tale of a boy and an injured rabbit who become martyrs to real estate development. "Silence," a somewhat affected tale about a guilt-burdened war veteran who acquiesces in his wife's affair with an ex-comrade, finds power in the evanescent fracturing of its hero's personality.
