Inhaltsangabe: A story about women, friendship and love, and how infidelity destroys it all. Six Midwestern Americans, now in their forties, are still "the girls" who have always believed that they know everything about each other. Then suddenly Jessie, who has always obsessively loved her husband, shoots him.
In person, Fred Busch is ebullient, charming, and wickedly funny. In his writing, he is a superlative craftsman. Even knowing how witty and wise he is, and even having enjoyed reading his beautifully wrought short stories, I was not prepared for the exquisitely skillful rendering of love, devotion, despair and suspense that Busch give in GIRLS. The profound ways in which Busch depicts relationships between men and women, the subtle, wordless communications, the many layers of sadness and joy, resentment and support, absolutely take my breath away in admiration. The inner emotional landscape of GIRL's characters is mirrored in the sere, cold, wintry, physical landscape in which they all struggle and search, haunted by lost and dead relationships. As Mr. Busch's former editor-in-chief, I begged his wonderful editor, Shaye Areheart, to influence Fred to write more books about the lead character in GIRLS, a security guard. Maybe you readers will help us convince him.
