I've never been a fan of short stories for the sole reason that many authors tend to leave the reader frustratedly hanging in the wind at the close of a story. Kevin Canty's near lyrical prose draws you in and evokes raw emotion from his carefully constructed characters. The pages practically turn themselves, there's no disputing his talent. Add this to your list of must reads, you won't be sorry.
