What Burns: Stories

Author(s): Dale Peck

Gay & Bi Male Fiction | New Releases

The first collection of short fiction from Lambda Award-winning novelist Dale Peck spans twenty-five years of writing, including two O. Henry award-winners and the recipient of a Pushcart Prize
 
The stories in What Burns examine the extremes of desire against a backdrop of family, class, and mortality.

In "Bliss," a young man befriends the convicted felon who murdered his mother when he was only a child. In "Not Even Camping Is Like Camping Anymore," a teenage boy fends off the advances of a five-year-old his mother babysits. And in "Dues," a man discovers that everything he owns is borrowed from someone else--including his time on earth. 

Walking the tightrope between tenderness and violence that has defined Peck's work since the publication of his first novel, Martin and John, through his most recent, Night SoilWhat Burns reveals Peck's mastery of the short form.
