Inhaltsangabe: From the first sentences of these nine stunning stories, Alicia Erian has you firmly in her grasp. In ?Alcatraz? we meet a middle-school spelling champion who spends her afternoons taking baths with the boy next door. In ?Almonds and Cherries,? a young woman turns an unexpectedly arousing bra-shopping experience into a short film, with ramifications for everyone around her. In ?Lass,? a new wife with a history of bad decisions finds herself powerfully drawn to another man ? her father-in-law.
Alicia Erian explores that peculiar part of the psyche and the complications of the heart that make you do things when you know better. The powerful, unsettling, deeply resonant stories in The Brutal Language of Love mark the emergence of a major new talent.
A jumble of contradictions--silly and smart, truthful and ridiculous, heartless and suddenly, painfully heartfelt. . . . . original and very funny too.
-- Mary Gaitskill, author of BAD BEHAVIOR
This isn't just a book. This is hilarious, heart-breaking torture.
-- Chuck Palahniuk, author of FIGHT CLUB
[These] stories sneak up on you . . . . so subtle and well-crafted the reader feels rich and rewarded every single time.
--Pam Houston, author of COWBOYS ARE MY WEAKNESS
[Erian] maps out a dark landscape of risk and desire, illuminated by vivid flashes of humor and insight."
-- Tom Perotta, author of JOE COLLEGE and ELECTION
Seductive, erotic, smart and tartly humorous, these tales are true gems.
-- Publisher's Weekly, starred review
