Black Light (paperback) With raw, poetic ferocity, Kimberly King Parsons exposes desire?s darkest hollows?those hidden places where most of us are afraid to look. In this debut collection of enormously perceptive and brutally unsentimental short stories, Parsons illuminates the ache of first love, the banality of selfloathing, the scourge of addiction, the myth of marriage, and the magic and inevitable disillusionment of childhood.Taking us from hot Texas highways to cold family kitchens, from the freedom of pay-by-the-hour motels to the claustrophobia of private school dorms, these stories erupt off the page with a primal howl?sharp-voiced, bitter, and wise. Black Light contains the type of storytelling that resonates somewhere deep, in the well of memory that repudiates nostalgia.?The stories in Black Light are grimy and weird, surprising, utterly lush. . . . I loved every moment of this book.??Carmen Maria Machado, author of Her Body and Other Parties?In lithe, lyrical prose ? la Amy Hempel and Noy
