Summaries and Reviews
The short novels Uh-Oh City and Black Cocktail, combine with many short stories--including 'Friend's Best Man,' 'The Sadness of Detail,' and 'The Life of My Crime'--in an outstanding anthology of the author's shorter fiction. description: Product Description: The twenty stories collected here transmit the same intense charges of intellect and emotion that characterize Carroll's longer works. Among the many pleasures are: "Friend's Best Man" - An award-winning story about a dog that teaches its owner the real and very frightening meaning of "The Animal Kingdom." "Black Cocktail" - A short novel about a high-school kid who never grew up - literally. "The Sadness of Detail" - What are we to do when contacted by angels? What are we to do when one makes an offer we can't refuse? "A Flash in the Pants" - Original to this volume - a story about a beautiful stranger and a house that remembers all too well its previous owners.
