Book DescriptionThe phrase ‘Going Out’ can be defined in so many ways: an exit, an ending, a single date, or a description of an entire relationship! Add ‘In Style’ to this, and the possibilities within the world of fiction become extraordinary.
“Going Out in Style” is a 28,000-word collection of six stories from the master of the short story, Daniel Kelley.
In “Performer,” it’s Thomas L. Blatten’s final day at work. After 42 years of playing the same chair in a symphony orchestra, he has concocted his own special way to say goodbye and thank you. During a concert! And he isn’t entirely sure what to expect from the audience or his fellow musicians as the performance unfolds…
“Bathtub Ripples” is Andie’s tale. Abused years before by an uncle, she’s found that everything in her life has a bit of a sour taste, and nothing ever quite jells with the opposite sex. Exploring her past with both solemnity and humor, Andie reflects on how she ended up where she is, and why she’s been unable to change.
Have you ever known someone who TESTS you? Who annoyingly sets a bar that has to be met? That would be the narrator of “Getting to Know You.” A famous writer, he meets avid fan Cecily after a publicity appearance, and asks her to tell him five things about herself; if she passes muster, he’ll continue to converse with her. The answers aren’t exactly what he expects, though! Feel free to savor his comeuppance.
In “Thinking Back,” a neighbor of Maddie’s family is murdered, and only gradually is the sequence of events that led to the murder revealed. Secrets, revelations and recriminations abound.
And then there’s Simon Oddgrove. In the hilarious narrative “Doing It All”, Simon’s dating history is recounted, along with the fascination he has for his aunt’s breasts and his penchant for doing, well, nothing. While at first glance an odd addition to this set, Simon’s lack of style is so pronounced that it is, in fact, its OWN style.
Rounding out the collection is “A Child’s Game,” in which Janice revisits the scene of her encounter with a beau whose sincerity ended up being somewhat less than trustworthy. Janice has her own ideas of how to finish off at least HER end of the relationship.
