Six Short Stories

eBook - 2009
Average Rating:
Rate this:
These six powerful short stories chronicle bits of the lives of characters, major and minor, who have walked the rugged terrain of Chris Crutcher's earlier works. They also introduce some new and unforgettable personalities who may well be heard from again in future books. As with all Crutcher's work, these are stories about athletes, and yet they are not sport stories. They are tales of love and death, bigotry and heroism, of real people doing their best even when that best isn't very good. Crutcher's straightforward style and total honesty have earned him an admiring audience and made readers of many nonreaders.

I’m a fat kid with faggot parents who’s been in therapy on and off for 18 years.

Granddad.. took me to San Francisco to see some gay people... it didn’t help much... [San Francisco, where else?!] was filled with people looking like they were headed for a... leather swap meet.

....don’t... spend all my life bitching about being [ugly], or about having parents a shade to the left of the middle on your normal bell-shaped sexual curve... phantoms of sexual perversity... point me out for public mockery.
