Fruit of the Month (Iowa Short Fiction Award) by Abby Frucht
English | Mar. 1, 1988 | ISBN: 0877451753 | 178 Pages | PDF | 6 MB
This fine debut of twelve stories explores a topography of the interior, probing the thoughts, motivations, and little-understood impulses behind moments of aggression, jealousy, and loneliness. Turning her eye on the academic landscape as well as the workaday world, Frucht keenly observes people forging friendships, groping for greater self-understanding, and attempting to find meaning in their lives and loves.
