Angels and You Dogs by Kathleen Ann Goonan First Edition

£12.99

Product description

Short stories are process of keeping juggled balls - or perhaps, fiery torches - aloft. They must, like any juggled objects, remain constantly in play; one cannot falter when executing a work of short fiction. Timing - the adept catch and pass of word, image, nuance, is everything; without perfect cadence, the writer's efforts drop out of the sky. Constant motion is imperative, although it can be as subtle as a second's silvery bow of a grassy meadow beneath a whisper of wind. No matter how quiet-seeming the tale, good stories embody concentrated, incandescent energy that may be hidden until the last word reveals the meaning of the just-read work, igniting a fire in the mind, compelling the reader to retrace the points in the story that are now luminescent, infused with allusion that was always there, but not yet discerned - just like much of life. Short stories are effervescent, for their life is hardly less fleeting that a round of juggling, gone in a month, flashing in and out of existence with the speed of a subatomic particle. A short story is a remarkable things indeed.

A First Edition copy in excellent condition.
