Annoying Storiesto those who don’t care for author Daniel Curzon’s off-kilter sense of humor
Sweet, Sweet Stories, Some Sweeter than Others (English Edition)
by Daniel Curzon
Annoying Stories are annoying to those who don’t care for author Daniel Curzon’s off-kilter sense of humor or his refusal to stick to only the Left or Right in his presentation of third-rail subjects such as race, religion, feminism, illness, and even death. He’ll tell you tales as a kind of ‘truth whisperer’ despite what the outside world wants you to believe. He can take you to a bucolic, all-American hometown (“Farmersville”) and then take you on another visit there, this time a harrowing one. For the author, a fierce, dark laugh seems to be the answer to the pieties that many seek in a one-size-fits-all reality.
“Daniel Curzon has done it again. He is the master at sculpting the art of the short story in lines rich with emotion, in settings so vivid as if to make you feel you’ve slipped into a fourth dimension where outcomes are mysteries until the last turn in the bend has twisted, when at first you laugh, then melancholia overcomes you once reflection on what you’ve just read seeps in – man-love, genuine and masculine-honest.”—Jeanette Skirvin, author and independent critic.
