My Life In Heavy Metal



'Master of the new urban American romance' Arena

Steve Almond's stunning first collection of short stories explores the lives of young men in their twenties and thirties, their confusions, their obsessions, their emotional complexities, taking a clear-eyed view of relationships between young men and women who have come of age in an era without innocence;

By turns tender and raw, visceral and otherworldly, the stories in My Life in Heavy Metal capture the moments when the fires of passion bum over and subside into the embers of pain and longing. This is a dazzling debut by a vibrant and gifted new writer.
