Referred Pain: And Other Stories
"A book in which suppleness of phrasing and
sensitivity to the subtler currents of human experience abound." -Chicago
From one of our ablest chroniclers of marriage, middle age, and
urban myth, a masterful collection of stories that subverts the standard
domestic drama with an edgy outrageousness that mixes tragedy with black humor.
In Referred Pain and Other Stories Lynne Sharon Schwartz surpasses her
reputation as a scrupulous stylist who writes with both passion and discipline.
Whether realistic or fanciful, her stories are distinguished for their intensity
and impeccable attention to the nuances of language. On the surface, her
characters are living ordinary lives, but Schwartz reveals their fantasies and
subversions with black humor and psychological acuity. Long lauded for her
precisely observed domestic dramas and comedies, this wide-ranging collection
gives further resonance to an already sterling reputation.
theme...resonates throughout the collection: our need to find the sort of
meaning that will keep our lives from becoming little more than aimless parades
of incidents." -New York Times
