Overview

A weekend trip to Lookout Mountain seems the perfect place for proposing her with a $22,000 diamond ring. Unfortunately, something goes terribly wrong. And there's a witness.

LONG DESCRIPTION
Olga, a law student living with her parents, meets Gail at a photo shoot of her younger sister Nadia, who's dreaming on becoming a super model. Gail is a make up artist; she lives with her boyfriend Guy, who works for an iron gate company. After a welding accident, Guy is rushed to the hospital; luckily he recovers, but he loses both eyes. Gail falls in love with Olga and she's no longer interested in Guy. During a trip to the mountains, Guy is brutally murdered. Nadia is lodging with friends in a cabin nearby and witnesses the murder. Gail becomes aware of the inconvenient witness and asks Olga to get rid of her sister.

NOTES
This edition includes chapter by chapter critical commentaries to enhance your enjoyment from reading Sorry But I Must Kill You. At 5,000 words it's quite extensive, yet essential. It can also be purchased separately and it's available in all digital formats. These notes are not intended as a substitute for reading the literary work. They're just a guide. They can never be exhaustive, and your own interpretation of the story will be quite different. What follow are summaries, commentaries, and brief critical notes on characters; please use them as reference before, during, and after your reading.

CRITICAL OVERVIEW
It's simple and banal to throw in a few characters here and there, and make them do something, say something, and hope to come up with an irresistible story. A story must have a meaning, because every single word has a meaning. People, ordinary or not, are not always motivated by ideals. For the most part, we all know what we want and what we don't. But we cannot always come up with answers for what lies beneath our actions. Pressure, social or not, makes us believe that there's always something better somewhere else. Distractions are often the prelude to destruction. Humans are often irrational, and no science can explain why. How can we prevent misunderstandings which could possibly lead to bad choices and even tragedy? This short story is not an essay on human understanding. The plot is simple. It depicts good and evil, lies, desires, sexual choices, friendship, spiritual beliefs, family values, and ultimately, in a drastic way, self-analysis. It ends with courage; what's done cannot be undone, and someone must pay the price.

MAIN THEMES AND IDEAS

1. The Title
Sorry but I must kill you is straight and to the point. It's the story fundamental idea that sometimes the overwhelming pressure of misfortune can wreck your mind and turn you into a monster.

2. Sense of Self
Gail has changed. It's unclear why she's suddenly attracted to another woman, but it's paramount that she wants a life of her own. She's revolted by her saccharine love story and ready to try something different. She exerts herself, but not without complications. An accident ruins everything, and she feels trapped. A $22,000 engagement ring makes things even worse. She's crucified, and she must become someone else in order to commit the most brutal crime.


SYMBOLS

1. The Loft
Called Gurls Butik or gallery, is never referenced as studio. A great deal happens inside: the party where everything begins, Nadia's first gig as cover girl, Olga's seduction, the place where Nadia ends up hiding, and Peter's collapse. Al calls it a circus, because inhibited girls robotically come in and out acting like mannequins. Later in her sojourn, Nadia, inspired by the ambiance, walks around without wearing much, but Al tells her that she's not at the beach.

2. The Black Cradle
Although an indispensable garment for women of all kinds and sizes, it's a no-no in the fashion industry. The photographer is horrified when he's pointing his camera at Nadia and notices the clashing bra.

Meet the Author

I would like to impress you with my numerous achievements, brilliant titles, stunts, and education background. I have no education, hopefully that will not displease you. I have no titles. And most of my achievements are, to my eyes, quite distasteful. Yeah, I forgot, English is not even my first language. Child labor has never been an issue in my family, so I went to work at age 13. I've been a movie projectionist, I restored ancient books from the Venice flood, I sold real estate, I worked in a Chamber of Commerce, I worked in resorts, hotels, restaurants, and on and on and on. I had a brief 5-year stint in the military where I learned how to read. After that I traveled a bit and learned a couple words in a few languages. Now I'm a pilot, I like planes. Now I can even write a little. I love stories, but I like to be in the middle of them. I am the main character, more or less, of my own stories; hopefully you will not find it suffocating.
