summary
Winner of the 1995 Drue Heinz Literature Prize. In these tightly drafted stories, Becker creates a wide variety of distinct voices, peculiar characters, and odd settings, with tantalizing emphasis on lonlieness, loss, and the ever-present struggle to find one’s place in the world. “It was wrong to think that our presence would linger on, though it was to this notion that I realized I’d been grasping all along,” the music-student narrator of “Dangerous Men” says after an evening involving drugs, a fight, and a car accident, “the idea that in some way we were etching ourselves onto the air, leaving shadows that would remain forever.”
