The Pugilist at Rest : And Other Stories Paperback
by Thom Jones
Thom Jones's stories strike with a profound and devastating impact.
HIs vision of the human condition is almost brutal, for in ithe world of Jones's fiction there is such a preponderance of darkness that light itself becomes a form of torture.
Yet each story in this collection is infused with the surprising, perhaps even ennobling grace of the spirit that ought to collapse, but cannot.
