Five Tuesdays in winter

King, Lily2022
Large Print
Told in the intimate voices of unique and endearing characters of all ages, these tales explore desire and heartache, loss and discovery, moments of jolting violence and the inexorable tug toward love at all costs. A bookseller’s unspoken love for his employee rises to the surface, a neglected teenage boy finds much-needed nurturing from an unlikely pair of college students hired to housesit, a girl’s loss of innocence at the hands of her employer’s son becomes a catalyst for strength and confidence, and a proud nonagenarian rages helplessly in his granddaughter’s hospital room. Romantic, hopeful, brutally raw and unsparingly honest, some even slipping into the surreal, these stories are, above all, about King’s enduring subject of love. Lily King's literary mastery, her spare and stunning prose and her gift for creating lasting and treasured characters is on full display in this curated selection of short fiction.
