Abstract:

Greg Johnson's latest collection of stories offers insights both subtle and startling into the workings of the human heart, from a child's-eye view of marital strife and a thoughtless betrayal of first love to the expansive reveries of complicated, conflicted adults looking ahead to new lives or back on past missteps and misfortunes. Johnson also delves into his literary roots with tales of imaginary encounters with Virgina Woolf, Sylvia Plath, Emily Dickinson, and Flannery O'Connor -- who, in the title story, engages in a fierce battle of wills with a precocious eleven-year-old boy. Through it all, Johnson demonstrates his gift for describing that telling detail -- a sentence, a gesture, a memory -- that instantly reveals a personality as if illuminated by lightning."--Back cover.
