Selected by Indie Booksellers for the March 2013 Indie Next List
“With her wild and dark imagination, Quatro has crafted highly original, thought-provoking, and deeply moving stories about faith, marriage, infidelity, sex, and death. This is bold, daring fiction that will not leave readers indifferent. Quatro is a very talented author who is willing to take risks, and I am looking forward to reading more by her.”
-- Pierre Camy, Schuler Books & Music, Okemos, MI


Description
"Passionate, sensuous, savagely intense, and remarkable . . . Moves between carnality and spirit like some franker, modernized Flannery O'Connor."--James Wood, " The New Yorker"
"An obsessive first collection that feels like a fifth or sixth. . . . Strange, thrilling, and disarmingly honest."--J. Robert Lennon, "The New York Times Book Review"
Sharp-edged and fearless, mixing white-hot yearning with daring humor, Quatro's stories upend and shake out our views on infidelity, faith, and family.
Set around Lookout Mountain on the border of Georgia and Tennessee, Quatro's hypnotically revealing stories range from the traditional to the fabulist as they expose lives torn between spirituality and sexuality in the New American South. These fifteen linked tales confront readers with fractured marriages, mercurial temptations, and dark theological complexities, and establish a sultry and enticingly cool new voice in American fiction.
