A Reckless Moon, and Other StoriesBook - 2002
Dianne Warren has crafted seven exquisite stories, each of them a near novella in scope and character. Warren's ear for the colloquial was honed during years of creating pitch-perfect dialogue for the stage, and her cast of hapless singles is as familiar as our most intimate friends. As her men and women wander from suburb to small town, serendipity wreaks havoc with their too-comfortable lives. Prank calls, stealthy neighbours and harmless thefts slowly whittle reality into brutal focus, and each character confronts a life irrevocably altered. Here is a world of casual violations, surprising fits of protest and small accidents with enormous repercussions.
