Omtale Fun with Problems
In "Fun with Problems", Robert Stone demonstrates once again that he is "one of our greatest living writers" ("Los Angeles Times"). The stories in this new collection share the signature blend of longing, violence, and black humour with which Stone illuminates the dark corners of the human soul. Entire lives are laid bare with remarkable precision, in captivating prose: a screenwriter carries on a decades-long affair with a beautiful actress, whose descent into addiction he can neither turn from nor share; a bored husband picks up a mysterious woman only to find that his ego has led him woefully astray; a world-beating Silicon Valley executive receives an unwelcome guest at his mansion in the hills; and, a scuba dive takes uneasy newlyweds to a point of no return. "Fun with Problems" showcases Stone's great gift: to pinpoint and make real the impulses - by turns violently coercive and quietly seductive - that cause us to conceal, reveal, and betray our truest selves.
