Where Love Leaves Us (Iowa Short Fiction Award) by Renee Manfredi
English | Jan. 1, 1994 | ISBN: 0877454442 | 158 Pages | PDF | 6 MB
Nine intricately configured stories–many about fathers and daughters on the Italian south side of Pittsburgh in the 1960's–by 1993 Iowa Short Fiction Award co-winner Manfredi (see Williford, below). The most powerful relationships here often verge perilously close to incestuous. In ``The Projectionist,'' the narrator's father, a movie projectionist who lost his first wife and daughter in Italy during the war, loses his mind when the narrator starts to date a hippie boy named Carlo.
