Fatted Calf Blues

Fatted Calf Blues

ISBN: 9780888013415
Author: Steven Mayoff

Spare, but warm and quietly elegant, Fatted Calf Blues uses metaphor, simile, and imagery to leave a lasting impression on the reader.

In “Forgiveness,” an encounter with a hawk on a beach causes a suicidal man to reflect on forgiveness versus the weight of the stones in his pockets. In “New Glasgow Kiss,” an ex-con flies across the ocean in the hope of reconciling with his estranged daughter. In “The Bridge by Moonlight,” a woman mourns her dead son and struggles to understand the depth of her daughter-in-law’s grief.

Many of the stories in Fatted Calf Blues have appeared in literary journals including Front’N’Centre, the Windsor Review, The Dublin Quarterly, Filling Station, Pottersfield Portfolio and Grain Magazine.
