5.0 1
by Linda A. Lavid
 
You can't always see what's coming. Stories about being blindsided-sometimes by family, friends, and lovers; sometimes by our own refusal to see the truth.
Praise for stories in Spots Blind:
"The License Plate," which features a woman only just realizing that her seemingly perfect marriage is anything but, as her husband mocks the kind of intimacy she longs

Overview

You can't always see what's coming. Stories about being blindsided-sometimes by family, friends, and lovers; sometimes by our own refusal to see the truth.
Praise for stories in Spots Blind:
"The License Plate," which features a woman only just realizing that her seemingly perfect marriage is anything but, as her husband mocks the kind of intimacy she longs for. "A Father's Love," which initially seems to be a memoir of a happy childhood, quickly becomes something else. Lavid's treatment of sensitive subjects such as these is proof of her skill as a writer.
-Tregolwyn Book Reviews
Linda Lavid takes ordinary situations and turns them into brilliant little gems of stories that examine the secret corners and surreal moments of life. Her style is engaging, her characters like people we encounter daily, and her plots-oh, her plots are so sublime. All in all a terrific read from someone who promises to master the classic short story and help rescue it from the tediousness of angst-ridden pointless short fictions that seem to be the rage today. Well done.
-Gary Earl Ross, Edgar Award Winner for Matter of Intent
Focused around the singular human emotion-want and desire combined-this collection of stories had me thinking about human interaction, emotion, and my own desires. It is rare to find a modern writer who is capable of expressing human propensities in such clear, concise language, but Linda Lavid does just that.
-New Great Books Review
Includes award-winning stories "The Accident" (from Best American Mysteries of 2003)and "DMV" (from Ascent Magazine)

What a great short story collection! Short pieces with drama, adult relationships, and family intrigue. I related, laughed, and felt fortunate not to be in those situations. Well worth the read!
