Driving Men Mad

Driving Men Mad (Paperback)

£10.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Short stories by the writer considered by many to be a Canadian Lorrie Moore. Elise Levine's work features highly compressed, propulsive narratives, with charged and layered language. Formally stylized, and yet predominantly character-driven, excavating often marginalized lives gripped by estrangement and imperiled by silence, urged toward the need to transcend and engage. The stories vary in terms of setting, voice, and point of view - from Florida to northern Ontario, from young damaged boys to peaceful old men and murderous old women - as well as form, ranging from flash to lengthier fictions.
