Song of the Silent Snow and Other Storiesby Hubert Selby
Hubert Selby began as a writer of short stories and
Fat Phil can't believe his luck at dice, but when his friends turn nasty, he pleads with fate to let him lose; a salesman psychs himself up with encouraging messages from fortune cookies, until the advice turns sour; a young boy experiences the onset of puberty as a sudden crushing weight one summer's afternoon.
Hubert Selby began as a writer of short stories and he excels in this form, plunging the reader headfirst into the densely realised worlds and dilemmas of his protagonists. He offers a passionate empathy with ordinary dreams, a brilliant ear for the street and for the voices of conscience and self-deceit that torment us all.
