Descripción del producto

Descripción del producto

Award-winning author Collin Kelley ("Conquering Venus" and "Remain In Light") explores his Southern roots with this collection of four short stories set in the town of Cottonwood, Georgia. In "How Fanny Got Her House," a devoted maid recalls the hijinks surrounding her employer's death from a brain tumor, while a teenage boy comes to terms with his sexuality during an unexpected game of pool in the title story, "Kiss Shot." A woman escaping an abusive relationship arrives in New Orleans during a rain storm and wanders into the famed "Clover Grill" on Bourbon Street, and "I Got A Name" follows the trials and tribulations of an overweight woman looking for love at a community theater company.

If you've never read any of Collin Kelley's poems or sampled his mystery/suspense novels (`Remain In Light ` and `Conquering Venus'), then you may not be ready for the very raw, genuinely atmospheric stories presented in this collection of four short stories titled KISS SHOT. But whether these stores are an introductory appetizer or a hefty portion of dessert for those who know his work, this is a set well worth reading.

Kelley understands the South as well as Tennessee Williams, Flannery O'Connor, Carson McCullers, Fannie Flagg, John Grisham, Tom Wolfe, Cormac McCarthy, Chris Offutt, Anne Rice, Barbara Kingsolver, Horton Foote, Allan Gurganus, and Jesmyn Ward to name only a few. He knows the mystique and the aura and the aroma and the soul of Southern living and is unafraid to look and share the underbelly of Southern society with these four journeys into the psyches of several Southern young people. He is unafraid to switch form the male to the female voice in the same story - a technique that opens the doors to understanding the characters better in the mater of a few short pages. He has the language down pat and delivers it so surely that for a suspended moment in time the reader is utterly immersed in the bizarre situations he explores.

Though it is difficult to select a favorite among these four offerings the manner in which he explore the ambiguous sexuality of a young lad in KISS SHOT is among the finest `coming to grips' stories available. And he is able to take a story about a suicidal girl who is escaping the Podunk town and lands in an equally sad atmosphere only to come to grips with the source of her suicidal ideation through the kindness of a stranger. In another story a gross, obese girl tries everything to be accepted and joins a theater company where she falls into a debasing situation only to be salvaged by a skinny young lad who happens to be gay. The location - Cottonwood, Georgia with some outlying activity in New Orleans.

Collin Kelley may just be on his way to joining the ranks of the fellow Southern writers listed above. He has the passion and the skills and seems prepared for more stories such as these fine four. Grady Harp, October 12

This is the second book by Collin Kelley that I've reviewed. Mr. Kelley's characters are complex and his stories are frequently deep and thought provoking, as are a couple of the stories in this book. "How Fannie Got Her House," however, is fun. Yes, it's an indictment of the Jim Crow South, but in a delightful way. The story I found most poignant was "I Got a Name." I rather resemble the woman in the story, in that I joined a community theatre group when I weighed three-hundred pounds. Fortunately, I wasn't looking for love. I simply was looking for fun and an outlet for my creative energy. However, I ran into similar weight prejudice from some of the members of the group. At three hundred pounds, who did I think I was, thinking I could act? The woman in Mr. Kelley's story doesn't even try to act. Yet she experiences similar prejudice. There's no chance for the fat lady to sing in this story. I was a caroler in Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" thanks to my ability to harmonize by ear and to provide my own Victorian-style XXXX-L cape.

But, I digress. Once again, Mr. Kelley has written a great book. I read it at the mall while my granddaughter was shopping. Yup--all four stories.

Kiss Shot: StoriesI very much enjoyed the stories in this short collection. I usually prefer reading novels to stories because there's more time for plot and character development but found neither lacking here. The characters are convincing and realistically displayed. I was left wanting more at the end of each story, which is how it should be. If I had to choose a favorite, I think I would select the last one about the young woman with the obesity problem. The story doesn't get sidetracked in explaining 'why' she is so heavy, but shows us how she relates to food and, even more important, how she relates to people in the context of her weight. I would highly recommend the collection to anyone.

It seems unfair to compare Collin Kelley to other writers, because he clearly has his own voice. That said, the author's influences are on full display here. Some Tennessee Williams, a little Lillian Hellman, a touch of Truman Capote -- but Kelley fearlessly (and sometimes graphically) goes where these writers wouldn't or couldn't because of the times in which they wrote. Every story here is a winner. I'm happy I bought this book. I want a paper version for my book collection.

Collin Kelley has a wonderful ear for dialogue in his stories set in a small Georgia town; the lines often have a poetic, sometimes humorous lilt to them, reminding me of some of Tennessee Williams' superb short plays ("27 Wagons Full of Cotton," "The Lady of Larkspur Lotion,") and others. Kelley's stories are wonderful, full of humor, pathos, and an authentic feel for the delicacy of human experience.
