Kevin Canty is a master of the short story whose work has been
compared to that of Flannery O'Connor and Raymond Carver. In "Where
the Money Went," he surprises us with stories about love and the
desertion of love, all written from a man's point of view. Rarely
is a man so revealing.
A narrator struggles with his abiding loyalty to his ex-wife, even
when he finds love with another woman. A newly divorced man learns
more than he wants to know about his friends' long-term marriages.
In these nine stories, which incisively touch on the complex nature
of love, we find men as fathers, as husbands, and as lovers, trying
their best in a world that stubbornly refuses to make sense. Canty,
whose writing has been praised as "smart, gritty, unsentimental"
("New York Times"), "lovely and unforgiving" ("Boston Globe"), and
"enchanting and painful" ("USA Today"), powerfully conveys both the
bitterness that can afflict romantic relationships, and the moments
of humor and tenderness that cut through it.
