Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

"Short Papa," the tale of a child instructed to guard an heirloom watch, and the title story, which takes on sexual and societal taboos in a black man's obsessive love for a white teenager, are among the 14 stories here. "This collection . . . has a delightful freshness and vitality," said PW . "Purdy's language is sparse and his stories compressed, focusing on the intensity of the moment."
