Yes, he writes about real life in a real way, but his characters are loathsome, shallow, unaware human beings that I don t want to encounter either on the page or in real life Good writing, but who cares I read about half of the stories and only one of them felt accessible in that it did not require too much thinking as to what the point of the story might be. Lots of books have the title, Fidelity Michael Redhill takes a broader perspective on what that word actually means It involves frogs, sex tapes, scientific fact, roadkill, and vasectomies Some stories show that even thinking about being with someone other than your spouse is an act of infidelity not an uncontrollable dream, but an actual plan even if the plan isn t fully developed and is for some time in the distant future Some stories show that divorce is not the end of love, no matter th Lots of books have the title, Fidelity Michael Redhill takes a broader perspective on what that word actually means It involves frogs, sex tapes, scientific fact, roadkill, and vasectomies Some stories show that even thinking about being with someone other than your spouse is an act of infidelity not an uncontrollable dream, but an actual plan even if the plan isn t fully developed and is for some time in the distant future Some stories show that divorce is not the end of love, no matter the reasoning behind the divorce Some stories show that fidelity has nothing to do with marriage or love at its core it is, in essence, about loyalty and honesty in any form Redhill offers some good lessons about the relationships of human beings.That being said, reading Fidelity made me feel the way I felt when I watched The Squid
The collection of short stories is loosely tied together by the thread of marriage, children and love The stories are set in a variety of spots known to Redhill includng Mount Morris NY caveat Redhill does not think highly of our local town to European trains and apartmen
10 stories about, in many ways, the exact opposite of the title Damaged people trying not to break their fidelity to themselves and ending up hurting those they should be faithful to The fickle nature of love, the selfish nature of humanity Often devestating and fragile, but rarely perfect A
good storiesloss with no redemptiona reminder that we can and do damage people whom we have loved Canadiansthere is something I find calming in an otherworldly way about Canadian fiction Makes me want to read similarly themed and slightlyhumorous short stories of Alice Munro Short stories on the theme of loyalty in the broadest sense , mostly set in contemporary SE Canada Well written, but mostly rather depressing loyalty only seems to bring misery, or at least regret. This is a collection of short stories about human nature, and all of its failings and foibles The illustration on the cover is a great, deceptively simple illustration of what happens when we betray another s trust. Don t often pick up short stories, it was a pleasant read.
