'The stories in Black Light are grimy and weird, surprising, utterly lush...I loved every moment of this book.' - Carmen Maria Machado, author of Her Body and Other Parties With raw, poetic ferocity, the National Book Award-nominated Black Light exposes desire's darkest hollows - those hidden places where most of us are afraid to look. Taking us from sultry highways to cold family kitchens, from the freedom of pay-by-the-hour motels to the claustrophobia of private school dorms, these enormously perceptive and brutally unsentimental short stories are about the ache of first love, the banality of self-loathing, the scourge of addiction, the myth of marriage, and the magic and inevitable disillusionment of childhood.
